A new edition of Daido Moriyama’s nudes photo collection MAYFLY, originally published in 1972. The edition focuses on "Kinbaku" photos, created with the cooperation of Oniroku Dan (1931-2011), and includes unreleased cuts.
Traveling down memory lane and going back 50 years in time, I arrived at a small and nameless village at the cape of a certain peninsula. What I found there were five naked women, all equally tied up with ropes, and with dazed looks on their faces. So I got out my camera and spontaneously began to take photographs.
It was a strange day; a day like an ephemeral vision.
