These three books, produced in collaboration with innovative fashion label Hysteric Glamour, signalled a new, less lyrical direction in Moriyamas work. The first two contain photographs of Tokyo, while for the third Moriyama took photographs in Osaka, his hometown. The following conversation is between Osamu Wataya, art director of these three books; Hajime Sawatari, photographer; and Michitaka Ota, editor and president of Sokyu-sha. Ota: You know theres not much left to say about Mr. Moriyama now, is there? Sawatari: Mmm, anyone whos anyone has already talked and written about him so much. Ota: And yet none of them make any sense to me though! Sawatari: Yeah, thats right. Even reading them carefully, I still cant understand them. (Laughing) Ota: But you know, once you see his work . it all becomes very clear. Sawatari: Yeah, you either love it or hate it. Wataya: And theres no particular reason why its good or bad. Sawatari: Yes, the good ones are good, others are very cool, and the rest are . different. So I think its enough to just say. Mr. Moriyama is really cool. Or not? (Laughing) Wataya: (Laughing) I agree. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
