Switch Publishing, Tokyo 2018
Size: 17,5 x 11,2 cm
For the first issue of Japanese Coyote magazine in 2004, Daido Moriyama visited the city of Uwajima on Japan’s Shikoku island, the Japanese artist Shinro Ohtake as his guide. Moriyama documented his trip to and through the city in an extensive number of street photo and snapshots, taken in his signature style, a selection of which was then featured in the magazine.
Now, almost fifteen years later, “Uwajima” finally collects the entire series, including a large number of previously unpublished photographs and an essay by Shinro Ohtake (in Japanese).
