Daido Moriyama. Cartier Foundation Catalogue.

Daido Moriyama. Cartier Foundation Catalogue. Photographs by Daido Moriyama. Text by Nobuyoshi Araki and Daido Moriyama. Fondation Cartier, Paris, 2003. Unpaged, numerous black-and-white illustrations, 9x11¼".

Daido Moriyama is a Japanese photographer and writer concerned with depicting the tearing down of traditional values in post-war Japan, drawing attention to the "indigenous world that remained in the shadows of rapid economic growth."

This book is a catalogue of Daido Moriyama's work published by the Cartier Foundation in 2003, which includes a conversation between Daido Moriyama and Japanese photographer and artist Nobuyoshi Araki (transcribed in French and English).

I've written about books by Daido Moriyama before here. You can also read more about Daido Moriyama here or here for example.
