The second entry in a new series of books titled “Woman in the Night”, created by Daido Moriyama together with Akio Nagasawa Gallery. Following the first entry (“Shinobu”), Moriyama presents photographs taken while following the memory of a woman he once met in Osaka and cannot forget…
This is Moriyama displaying all his strengths – a moody, sentimental, erotic and complex tale relayed through imaginative, fresh compositions and Moriyama’s signature visual aesthetic.
“There was a woman called Hiroko in Osaka’s Minami district.
She was a person who loved ENKA.
It’s already five years since she disappeared from Minami.
Even now, I still think of her sometimes.
This is a profile of her as she appears in my memory."
— from the afterword (included in Japanese and English translation)
