"I turned "the people in the street" and "the things in the street" in the eyes of me into two books using monochrome and color images. Both books are projected my concioussness and body on the street.”--Daido Moriyama

"The images are selected mainly from 70s and 80s black and white works, just ordinary people on the street. The book was weaved as if there are the stories about salaryman's desire and sorrows."--Publisher

The companion book to Moriyama's "Color Photograph" - also published by Super Labo in an edition of 500. The title, "gekijo" is a conscious echo of the title of one Moriyama's earliest and greatest photobooks, "Nippon Gekijo Shashincho - Japan: a Photo-Theater."

No less than five of Daido Moriyama's books were selected as among the greatest photobooks in Parr and Badgers "History of the Photobook."
