* Daido MORIYAMA "Kagero" - "Mayfly" 1972 Photobook


Availability: Out of stock

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

Moriyama's 5th 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: Unusually Excellent. The outer case is very good with none of the usual flaking and losses to the spine. The book, both interior and exterior, is excellent, with virtually none of the usual foxing seen on the outer white wraps - this may be the brightest and whitest copy that I have ever seen. Even the usual middle crease in the spine of the book is very minimal (this seems to be inevitable because of the book's design with its lighter weight pages in the middle section surrounded on both sides by heavier weight pages).

Shipping costs: International EMS (express mail service) delivery estimated within 2-4 days - $24.00 (USA), $28.00 (Europe). Shipping weight: approx. 950g.
