About This Item

Tokyo: Akio Nagasawa, 2008–19. First printing. A superb collection of Moriyama’s magazine Kiroku (Record), up to 2019, consisting of the following items, all in mint condition (save for the occasional slightest signs of shelfwear):

Issues 1–5: the 2008 reprint of the all-but-unobtainable first five issues, with five facsimile issues in grey card folder, and signed insert;

Issues 6–40; each issue roughly 8.5 x 11 inches, ranging from 48 to 192 pages, and signed by Moriyama;

Record Extra Issue No. 1, Daido Moriyama’s Snap and Hajime Sawatari’s Tao, bound dos-a-dos, signed by both (2007); (200) pp., 9 x 11.75 inches;

Record: Movie in London, DVD with 46-minute documentary shot during Moriyama’s visit to London for his exhibition at the Tate Modern with William Klein, and 15-minute bonus section, Making of Record, with insert signed by Moriyama (2013);

Record Desk Calendar, sixteen color reproductions on stiff cardstock, housed in plastic case, signed by Moriyama (2016);

Record, anthology edited by Mark Holborn, with selections from the first thirty issues; the Japanese edition, hardcover in slipcase, signed by Moriyama; (424) pp. (2017);

Daido Moriyama Postcard Set (eight color postcards) (undated, unsigned);

Postcard invitation to 2011 exhibition for Record No. 19 at BLD Gallery in Tokyo (unsigned).

In 1972–73, at the age of 34 and emerging from his involvement with Provoke, Daido Moriyama published five issues of a personal photography magazine, Kiroku (Record). (Published in editions of 300 copies, the original issues are now very scarce and ferociously expensive.)

Thirty-four years later, in 2006, he revived the magazine, with Akio Nagasawa on board as publisher, and issues appearing two or three times a year. Every new issue is an event, and Moriyama shows no sign of slowing down; the latest issue, number 45, came out earlier this year. The issues in the new series are published in editions of 1000, and the earliest of those have begun to go out of print. (Most of the extras included with this collection are likewise no longer available from the publishers.)

“I like Somerset Maugham’s phrase that when it rains, you should write that it rained.That’s why I started Record 36 years ago at the age of 34. I probably also thought of photography that way.

And now it suddenly comes back to me: the nameless light, the city, the time.” (Daido Moriyama, insert to Record 1–5, 2008)

An exceptional opportunity to acquire a more-than-complete signed collection of a truly unique photographic project.
