Daido MORIYAMA, photographer. "Hysteric Glamour No. 6." Osamu Wataya and Toshio Shiratani, art direction. Tokyo: Hysteric Glamour and Nobuhiko Kitamura, 1994, PB, Approx. 360 pp, b/w reproductions, Limited Edition of 700 copies.

The second 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, SIGNED by Moriyama with silver marker on the title page. A bit of edge wear and small handling creases but still better than most copies of this book that I have seen. These gigantic paperbacks are almost impossible to find without a myriad of creases, fingerprints and dog-eared edges and Hysteric didn't help matters by neglecting to provide boxes for the first 10 volumes.

Shipping costs: International EMS (express mail service) delivery estimated within 2-4 days - $54.00 (USA), $62.00 (Europe). Shipping weight: approx. 2775g.
