Japanese Theater (often translated as 'Japan: A Photo Theater'). Photographs by Daido Moriyama. Text by Shuji Terayama. Muromachi-Shobo, 1968. 208 pp. Small quarto. First edition. Faux-felt stiff wrappers. Printed cardboard slipcase. 146 offset reproductions.



Moriyama's epochal first book!! Included in Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 1970s by Ivan Vartanian & Ryuichi Kaneko. . "Moriayama’s images signaled a new distinctly Japanese photographic language — one that was not just occurring in photography, but also in cinema, theater and dance. Pages presenting outrageously dressed thespians are followed by double spreads of salarymen at banquet tables and baton twirling majorettes. The overriding sensation from this book is that of a 'spectacle' that portrays life in a constant state of motion."--from Russet Lederman's excellent post--devoted to the various editions of this book--on Monsters & Madonnas, the ICP Library Blog READ MORE
