“When Daido Moriyama`s friend the designer Tadanori Yokoo had a show at the MOMA, New York in 1971, Moriyama accompanied him for two months. It was his first trip out of Japan, and he produced a masterpiece of improvised book-making from the images he shot there with his half-frame camera. In 1974, he rented a Tokyo shop and a photocopy machine for 14 days, and produced the copies of this rarest of photobooks, while each customer waited. At most 100 copies were sold.”
