Daido MORIYAMA "Hysteric Glamour, No. 4" 1993 Photobook Ltd Ed 300


Availability: Out of stock

Daido MORIYAMA, photographer. "Hysteric Glamour No. 4." Osamu Wataya and Kimie Hata, art direction. Tokyo: Hysteric Glamour and Nobuhiko Kitamura, 1993, PB, b/w reproductions, Limited Edition of 300 copies. This copy has a very low number in the single-digits.

The first and scarcest of Moriyama's three Hysteric volumes (nos. 4, 6 & 8).

"Daido Moriyama is one of the most important and exciting Japanese photographers of our time, having made prolific, often experimental pictures of modern urban life since the 1960s....Moriyama approaches the world with an equalizing eye, capturing disparate peripheral details that in themselves account for little, but together add up to a powerful diagnosis of modern experience. In 1980s Japan such details encompassed the disorienting and sometimes brutal juxtaposition of traditional culture and modernization, most visible in the glut of consumer goods and images. But in Moriyama’s photographs these subjects appear alongside the banal elements of any streetscape: a derelict patch of pavement and wall, a car with an aggressive key scratch running its full length, even a single rose blossom."--Philiadelphia Museum of Art.

"There is perhaps no other living photographer who better embodies the Baudelaire's ideal of the flaneur, the anonymous observer of the urban street life who derives pleasure from the hustle and bustle of the city streets, who moves among the urban crowd with the eye of the artist."--Photo-eye.

Condition: Very Good, some of the unavoidable handling creases, slight toning along the top. Spine is fine, corners are fine, interior is very good. The second best copy I have seen. Also includes the original postcard advertisement from the Gallery Exhibition - first time I've seen one of these.
