Daido Moriyama: t-82 Paperback – July 1, 2007
In 2006, Powershovel Books initiated a public art event by handing out "toy cameras" to anyone and everyone who would take one, and exhibiting a selection of the resulting photographs. (The "toy camera" in question was a Polga, a hybrid Holga camera that used Polaroid film.) One of the participants was the legendary Japanese street photographer, Daido Moriyama--and it is that series of darkly poetic photographs that this book so lovingly collects, offering a more-tranquil-than-usual walk around Tokyo, with the distinctive details of the urban landscape that only Moriyama could capture. The peculiar photographic qualities of the Polga add a unique taste and some layers of diffused grays to the timeless art of Daido Moriyama.
