Daido Moriyama Record No. 14.

Daido Moriyama Record No. 14. Photographs by Daido Moriyama. Nazraeli Press, Portland, 2010. Unpaged, colour illustrations throughout, 8¼x11".

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."

Moriyama’s 'Record' series is "a personal photographic magazine originally conceived by Moriyama in 1972". I've previously featured other books from this series here.

'Record No. 14' is "the latest installment from Moriyama’s ongoing magazine series and the first dedicated to full color digital photographs.

The images were taken around the surroundings of Asahikawa, Hokkaido and while they are a departure from the photographs shown in previous issues, Record No. 14 provides a glimpse of the full scope of this iconic photographer’s vision."
