each copy numbered and signed.
‘Tights in Shimotakaido’ is Daido Moriyama’s second series of silk-screen printed and hand-bound photobooks with Japanese publisher Akio Nagasawa (following the eery ‘Pantomime’).
In ‘Tights in Shimotakaido’, Moriyama is fascinated by the patterns and visual structures found in a woman’s tights. Strange, dazzling mesh woven labyrinthine motifs, erotic sights transformed into abstract lines.
