“Light and Shadow,” Daido Moriyama’s classic from 1982, finally available again in a new edition by Bookshop M & Getsuyousha.
The photobook marked Moriyama’s return to photography, ten years after his previous photobook publication and three years after he basically stopped photographing altogether. “Light and Shadow” also marks an evolution in Moriyama’s photography, with the moodiness of earlier works replaced by a clearer focus on objects and the early bure-boke having evolved into a richer, high-contrast style.
The English version features a hardcover reprint of Moriyama’s 1982 photobook as well as a booklet with detailed information to each photograph, exclusive commentary by Daido Moriyama, and an interview originally published in the September 1981 issue of the magazine “Shashin Jidai” (all in English translation).
Signed by Daido Moriyama. English Edition of 1000 copies.
