“Light and Shadow,” Daido Moriyama’s classic from 1982, finally available again in a new edition by Bookshop M & Getsuyousha.
The photobook marked Moriyama’s return to photography, ten years after his previous photobook publication and three years after he basically stopped photographing altogether. “Light and Shadow” also marks an evolution in Moriyama’s photography, with the moodiness of earlier works replaced by a clearer focus on objects and the early bure-boke having evolved into a richer, high-contrast style.
This Japanese version features exclusive commentary by Moriyama in which he outlines the ten years between the publication of “Farewell Photography” (1972) and “Light and Shadow” (1982), and provides additional information for each photograph in the book.
