■ Daido Moriyama RECORD No.30 e-Book vers.
"The scenery that I felt and perceived with my eyes was indeed that same old Marrakesh, that I hadn't seen for half a century."
- DAIDO MORIYAMA (Experts from the original text of Record No.30)
A world revealing in the shades of grey appearing between the light and the shadow created by the beam pouring in from the window.
The images of the people, the streets connects to the hidden territory of the memory deep inside. Daido Moriyama traveled among the old city of Marrakesh, through the crowded market street into the foot of the Atlas Mountains.
This issue contains the images captured at Marrakesh, Morrocco, where he visited the place for the first time in the past 26 years where he had his solo exhibition in November 2015.
What is DAIDO MORIYAMA's "RECORD"?
It was 34 years ago, back in 1972, that I came out with the self-published photo journal 'Kiroku.' At the time, I was busy with all sorts of work for magazines. Partly because of a daily feeling inside that I shouldn't let myself get carried away by it all, I came up with the idea of a small, self-published personal photo journal. Without any ties to work or any fixed topic, I just wanted to continue publishing a 16-page booklet with an arbitrary selection of favorite photos among the pictures I snapped from day to day. By nature, it was directed first and foremost to myself rather than other people. I wanted a simple, basic title, so I called it 'Kiroku' (record).
Who is DAIDO MORIYAMA?
DAIDO MORIYAMA/Born 1938 in Osaka. After working as an assistant for photographers Takeji Iwamiya and Eikoh Hosoe, he went independent in 1964. He has been publishing his works in photography magazines among others, and received a New Artist Award from the Japan Photo Critics Association for Japan: A Photo Theater in 1967. Between 1968 and ’70 he was involved in the photo fanzine Provoke, and his style of grainy, high-contrast images that came to be referred to as “are, bure, boke” (grainy, blurry, out-of-focus) made an impact on the realm of photography. Solo shows at New York' s Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain in Paris solidified Moriyama’s worldwide reputation, and in 2012, he became the first Japanese to be awarded in the category of Lifetime Achievement at the 28th Annual Infinity Awards hosted by the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York. The “William Klein + Daido Moriyama” exhibition together with William Klein at London’s Tate Modern in 2012-13 was a showdown of two immensely popular photographers that took the world by storm. Daido keeps going on enourmous amount of Street Snap under the motto…. "There are no Quality without Quantity". e-Book version of "Record series" was originally released in June, 2013 domestic in Japan, and it has been released worldwide in September, 2014 from Apple iBookstore and Kindle Store. e-Book version of "Record Series" will continue.
