First edition thus (PowerShovel), first printing (originally published in 1972 with rich gravure plates, and in a smaller format that this reissue). Boldly signed (in kanji and English) in black marker on the front free endpaper by Moriyama. Soft cover. Black laminated stiff wrappers with Japanese title printed in white on cover, with English title printed in gray on white laminated dust jacket with French folds; contained in a clear acetate slipcase with Japanese title printed in black on cover. Photographs by Daido Moriyama. Unpaginated (276 pp.), with 135 full-bleed black and white plates printed as 2-page spreads. 11-1/2 x 9 inches. New in publisher's shrink-wrap (slit open for signature), to protect the acetate slipcase from scuffing. From the publisher: "A revised reprint of Moriyama's original and now highly sought after classic publication of 1972. Inspired by William Klein's blurred photos of New York street life, Andy Warhol's silk-screened productions and Jack Kerouac's free-spirited travel writing, Moriyama developed a new and radical approach to producing images. These broken, rough and blurred black and white photographs paved the way for what would become his future trademark style.No prints or negatives exist for the material represented in the original Farewell Photography, so this reprint was produced using a copy of the original book as source material. Larger than the original (and with no text whatsoever), this version emphasizes even more strongly Moriyama's frenetic, dynamic approach to image making. And the choice to reprint reprinted material (because, after all, the original book was still a reprint of the photographs themselves) raises interesting critical issues. The aesthetic decisions involved reflect on both photography's development as a medium and the recent interest in the history of photography books - spurred in no small part by the Photobook history by Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. More than simply a reprint of a classic of Japanese photography, this is a reinterpretation." Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: This heavy, glossy, slipcased, reprinted reinterpretation of the legendary 1972 book, Farewell Photography, brings a much-sought-after classic back into print under the strict supervision of the artist, Daido Moriyama. Together with the publisher, Moriyama worked with larger prints and chose higher contrasts, abolishing all text in order to emphasize the dynamic, broken, blurred, vertiginously tilted, starkly cropped and timeless photography reproduced here. Moriyama is one of the most respected and influential photographers today, and this book bears the testimony of his early work, with all of its alluring landmark elements. Almost resulting in mayhem, these accidentally continuous black-and-white images can feel both invasive and intimate, as they freeze the animate and inanimate world before it is gone. An overwhelming torrent of early talent by an extraordinary artist.
