「『写真はモノクロームだろうが!』とほざくのが、ぼくの捨てゼリフである」(著者コメントより)。2009年12月に刊行された森山大道の私家版写真誌「記録 第13号」を電子書籍化。今回の作品集は全編ポラロイド撮影で構成された。
森山大道(もりやま だいどう)/写真家。1938年10月10日。岩宮武二スタジオを経て細江英公の助手となり、1964年より独立。ハイコントラストで粒子の粗い“アレ・ブレ・ボケ”と称される独自のスタイルを確立するなど、既存の写真表現をラディカルに挑発し続け、世界的にも高い評価を得る。「量のない質はない」というポリシーのもと、現在でも膨大な数のストリートスナップを撮り続けている。近年の写真集に『NAGISA』『LABYRINTH』(Akio Nagasawa Publishing)、『カラー』『モノクロ』(月曜社)、『実験室からの眺め』(河出書房新社)など。

People often ask me about black-and-white photography. They inquire about what I think of it, why the bulk of my work is in black and white, and where I see the main appeal of black-and-white photography among other things. “Because I like it” or “because it looks sexy” are generally the best answers, but in cases when the asker wants to hear a little more, I usually add a bit of my own interpretation, explaining that there’s something “dreamy” about black-and-white, and that I appreciate its “symbolically abstract” quality.
The black-and-white shots featured in this issue were taken with FUJIFILM INSTANT B&W FP-400B film, using a POLAROID LAND CAMERA MODEL 180 that was given to me by a former student.
-DAIDO MORIYAMA

Daidō Moriyama (Moriyama Daidō, born October 10, 1938) is a Japanese photographer noted for his images depicting the breakdown of traditional values in post-war Japan.
Born in Ikeda, Osaka, Daidō Moriyama studied photography under Takeji Iwamiya before moving to Tokyo in 1961 to work as an assistant to Eikoh Hosoe. He produced a collection of photographs, on "Nippon gekijō shashinchō" Though not exclusively, Moriyama predominantly takes high contrast, grainy, black and white photographs within the Shinjuku area of Tokyo, often shot from odd angles. Moriyama's photography has been influenced by Seiryū Inoue, Shōmei Tōmatsu, William Klein, Andy Warhol, Eikoh Hosoe, the Japanese writer Yukio Mishima, the dramatist Shūji Terayama, and Jack Kerouac's "On the Road".

Plexus Co.,Ltd.(Tokyo, Japan) proudly presents Daido Moriyama's lifework series "RECORD" in e-Book for the first time distributing in worldwide scale.
