October 29 was for me a Saturday just like any other Saturday. As usual, I put my camera into the pocket of my jacket in the morning, and walked down to the coffee shop near the park at Ikebukuro station’s West Exit to have my coffee, while shooting the occasional picture as I leisurely passed through familiar sceneries.

An omission

While sitting there and absent-mindedly sipping my coffee, a certain thought literally flashed across my mind. It was a thought that had never occurred to me before. The idea was to fill one issue of Record exclusively with the photos taken on this particular day. For a very long time I’d been bragging about how I’d only need a single day to shoot enough material to fill an entire photo book, but in reality it never was that easy. But as this was the plan that I hatched over my coffee, it dawned on me that I had no other choice this time.

                                                             -Daido Moriyama, afterword

Daido MORIYAMA

森山大道

Born 1938 in Osaka. After working as an assistant for photographers Takeji Iwamiya and Eikoh Hosoe, he went independent in 1964. He has been publishing his works in photography magazines among others, and received a New Artist Award from the Japan Photo Critics Association for Japan: A Photo Theater in 1967. Between 1968 and ’70 he was involved in the photo fanzine Provoke, and his style of grainy, high-contrast images that came to be referred to as “are, bure, boke” (grainy, blurry, out-of-focus) made an impact on the realm of photography. Solo shows at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain in Paris solidified Moriyama’s worldwide reputation, and in 2012, he became the first Japanese to be awarded in the category of Lifetime Achievement at the 28th Annual Infinity Awards hosted by the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York. The “William Klein + Daido Moriyama” exhibition together with William Klein at London’s Tate Modern in 2012-13 was a showdown of two immensely popular photographers that took the world by storm.
