Publisher's Description

This 2018 release is the first to feature English translations of Shuji Terayama’s writings. The book, limited to an edition of 700, is numbered and signed by Daido Moriyama.

The very first photobook by legendary Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama, Japan: A Photo Theater, is finally available again in a renewed edition.

Originally published in 1968 – the year which also saw the launch of the influential Provoke magazine – the book already demonstrates Moriyama’s trademark visual style. On invitation of Japanese writer Shuji Terayama, Moriyama began photographing members of a traveling theater group, adding shots of dwarf show dancers, strip clubs, street performers, fetuses in formaldehyde containers and other motifs.
