Signed&Numbered / Limited Editions of 600 / Cover of Silkscreen-Printed on Canvas

The publication of Daido Moriyama’s photo book Farewell Photography in 1972 was certainly one of the most important events in the history of modern photography. It would be no exaggeration to say that it had such a great impact that the photography world was quite a different place after the book’s publication than it was before. It was repeatedly reissued between the first issue and today, and the effect it still has is as great – if not greater – now as it was in 1972.
This reproduced 2020 edition of Farewell Photography is based around those 80 images. The series consisted entirely of landscape format shots, and previous publications featured one photograph each across two pages, so that all of the images had folds in the center. In order to avoid ruining the photographs that way, and make it easier to fully appreciate every single one of them, the book design for this edition features a layout of one item per page.

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.
