This heavy, glossy, slipcased, reprinted reinterpretation of the legendary 1972 book, Farewell Photography, brings a much-sought-after classic back into print under the strict supervision of the artist, Daido Moriyama. Together with the publisher, Moriyama worked with larger prints and chose higher contrasts, abolishing all text in order to emphasize the dynamic, broken, blurred, vertiginously tilted, starkly cropped and timeless photography reproduced here. Moriyama is one of the most respected and influential photographers today, and this book bears the testimony of his early work, with all of its alluring landmark elements. Almost resulting in mayhem, these accidentally continuous black-and-white images can feel both invasive and intimate, as they freeze the animate and inanimate world before it is gone. An overwhelming torrent of early talent by an extraordinary artist.
