Daido Moriyama’s “Kanban” (Japanese for “signboard”) focuses on one of the Japanese master photographer’s favorite visual themes – signs and billboards. In black-and-white and color photographs, on single pages as well as on fold-outs, Moriyama presents a tapestry of signs found on walls, shopping windows and streets of his favorite cities.
“Kanban” is the seventh installment in Daido Moriyama’s series of hand-bound photobooks with silk-screen printed covers on canvas, following previous entries “Boku”, “Lips! Lips! Lips!”, “Tights in Shimotakaido”, “Pantomime”, “Plastic Love”, and “Kura Chan”, published in collaboration with Japanese publisher Akio Nagasawa.
