Publisher Description

「マンハッタンは、魅せられ惹かれときめくサムシングに充ちている」(著者コメントより)。2010年4月に刊行された森山大道の私家版写真誌「記録 第15号」を電子書籍化。真冬のニューヨークは、限りなく複製されるイメージで氾濫していた。
森山大道(もりやま だいどう)/写真家。1938年10月10日、大阪府生まれ。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。

The creator of the photography book New York, William Klein once described the city in which he was born and raised as “a mixture of beauty, tenderness, absurd brutality, and fathomless intimidation” before leaving for Paris.
The city of New York, and the Manhattan neighborhood in particular, is certainly one huge melting pot of human desires, and as one can easily imagine that it is an extremely practical location, it seems just natural to me that an artist of a nervous and sensitive nature sooner or later feels like plotting an escape.
For myself, however, who is always just a traveler, Manhattan has that throbbing something that attracts and spellbinds people - although it might of course be different if I wasn’t only visiting. New York is filled with a vague scent of mescaline, while the smell of Andy Warhol is billowing out of every street.
-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.
