Background informations about 'KURA chan' photo book
This photo book, 'KURA chan', is the sixth issue of a series of hand-bound books with silk-screened covers on canvas. It is a re-edited edition of Daido MORIYAMA's images from 'Provoke' Vol. 2 & Vol. 3, including many previously unpublished works that were not published at the time.

This signed and numbered photo book, 'KURA chan', has a cover which is silkscreen-printed on canvas, like his precursors and follwers in this series. As usula for that 'Provoke' time and typical for Daido MORIYAMA, the photographs are all in black & white and coarse-grained. Perhaps you've seen this photographs in the early 'Provoke' zines, volume 2 and volume 3.
