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.
