Inspired by Japanese photographers and American photographer William KLEIN's groundbreaking photo book on New York, young Daido MORIYAMA (b. 1938) moved from Osaka to Tokyo in the early 1960s to become a photographer. He became the leading exponent of a new, wild photographic style, perfectly suited to Tokyo's harsh and intense climate at a time of great social upheaval.
Between June 1972 and July 1973, he published his own magazine called 'Kiroku', which was then called 'Record'. It became a diary of the development of his work. To this day, Daido MORIYAMA publishes a new 'Record' volume at least once a year.
The staple-bound, paperback editions of Daido MORIYAMA's 'Records' (Japanese 'Kiroku') in the format 28 x 21 centimeters contain full-page photographs, mostly in black and white, only a few volumes (e.g. 'Record No.14') consist of color photographs.
The snapshots taken by the Japanese photographer focus on urban life as he subjectively perceived it while walking: besides street scenes with or without people, advertising signs and shop windows are among his favorite motifs.
