Daido Moriyama: A Hunter (2019 reprint)
Daido Moriyama’s legendary photobook, now available again with invaluable commentary.
A Hunter was published in 1972, as the tenth part of a photobook series called Gendai no Me, and includes some of Daido Moriyama’s most infamous and respected photographs. For the series, Moriyama — inspired by Kerouac’s On The Road — drove through Japan by car, took photos wherever his wheels took him, and substantiated his status as one of Japan’s most interesting photographers.
This faithful new edition features the photobook as well as a carefully designed and researched English booklet which includes essays by Tadanori Yokoo and Shoji Yamagashi as well as invaluable commentary by Daido Moriyama regarding the book as a whole as well as each individual photograph.
One of three reprints of Moriyama’s early work produced by bookshop M and Getsuyosha in Tokyo in 2019.
