DAIDO MORIYAMA: MIRAGE. Hisako Motoo. MMM, 2018. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 56 pp. with 35 col. ills. 29 x 26 cm. ISBN 9784908088131 In English.
Due date: Forthcoming. Publisher's description: Mirage is the fourth of Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama's limited-edition publications with MMM. For this volume, Moriyama (born 1938) unearthed a selection of previously unpublished color slides from the 1970s. The slides have faded over the past four decades, and this volume reproduces them in their present fragile beauty. The works consist of several bondage photographs made on commission, and images shot for Japanese Playboy. Editor Hisako Motoo writes in his afterword: "Snapshots of glinting neon nightgowns, backside figures walking in train stations seen only once and never again, the thrust-chin sidelong disdainful glance of a woman, scenes drawn to Moriyama's unwavering compass needle . after several decades film takes on mildewy discolorations until we're peering at scenes through a blur of frosted glass. As if the crisp coating of reality had worn away over time, misting into hazy mirages of memory." This beautiful slipcased hardcover volume features a tip-on front-cover image and is published in a limited edition of 1,000 copies (of which 200 are available through Artbook|D.A.P.). Each copy is signed by Moriyama on the title page, and both the book and the slipcase are numbered.
