Bye, Bye Photography, Dear.Tokyo: Shashinhyoron-sha, 1972 Stock Code: 136819
A near-fine copy, signed by MoriyamaFirst edition, first printing, signed by Moriyama on the title page. This series of photographs were taken in the late 1960s and early 1970s during strikes, student protests, and violent antiwar demonstrations. "In an extreme act of dissociation and disorientation, the image is scattered to the four winds: lovers' skin, white legs walking away, a flash of light in a stone corner,... But the eye (and the eye is a part of the mind), recollects the shards. Is there to be found anywhere else in the history of photographic bookmaking such a raw cry as this?" (Roth).
Quarto. Original black printed stiff wrappers, titles in grey, white, and blue to covers and spine. With dust jacket.
Monochrome photographic illustrations throughout.
Joints a little rubbed, faint foxing to endpapers; else a near-fine copy in the very good dust jacket, slight foxing and soiling.
