Shashin yo Sayonara / Bye, Bye Photography, Dear
Tokyo: Shashin Hyoron-sha, 1972. First Edition. Small quarto. The photographer's third book: a masterpiece of Japanese photography, and the book that best illustrates the conceptual ideals and vision of the Provoke photographers. Here Moriyama pushes the boundaries of the medium: assembling images from a variety of sources, placing them in a tumultuous and discordant anti-sequence, and assaulting the viewer with full-page grainy, blurry, and sometimes indecipherable pictures. (Parr / Badger, v1, 298; Roth 218; Open Book 290; Auer 543). Light inevitable creases at the spine, extreme top edge of rear cover cover gently creased, small crease to the edge of the front pastedown; near fine in wrappers in a near fine jacket with a small closed tear and crease at the spine head. Clean and bright copy despite the minor flaws. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Harper's Books, ABAA [East Hampton, NY, U.S.A.]
