Availability: Out of stock

Daido MORIYAMA, photographer. "Mayfly" - "Kagero." Japan: Haga Shoten, 1972, First Edition, PB, case, 27 x 19 cm, 184 pp, b/w & color plates.

One of the scarcest and most important photography monographs ever published. An important early work of Moriyama's, his fifth book, by far his most erotic work.

"While similar in theme to much of Araki's work, the figures in these photos are removed from their context in the red-light districts of Tokyo and set against earthy, organic backgrounds. The images are somewhat grounded by a section in the center of the book that reproduces contact sheets showing images from the shoots." - Photo Eye.

Condition: The outer case is very good for this book with none of the usual flaking and losses to the spine. The interior of the book is very good, some of the usual foxing is seen on the outer white wraps. The spine of the book has the usual single crease in the middle but otherwise strong.

Shipping costs: International EMS (express mail service) delivery estimated within 2-4 days - $24.00 (USA), $28.00 (Europe). Shipping weight: approx. 975g.
