Photographs by Daido Moriyama.
Powershovel, Tokyo, 2007. 158 pp., Illustrated throughout, 9¾x9¼".

Publisher's Description
In 2006, Powershovel Books initiated a public art event by handing out 'toy cameras' to anyone and everyone who would take one, and exhibiting a selection of the resulting photographs. (The 'toy camera' in question was a Polga, a hybrid Holga camera that used Polaroid film.) One of the participants was the legendary Japanese street photographer, Daido Moriyama-and it is that series of darkly poetic photographs that this book so lovingly collects, offering a more-tranquil-than-usual walk around Tokyo, with the distinctive details of the urban landscape that only Moriyama could capture. The peculiar photographic qualities of the Polga add a unique taste and some layers of diffused grays to the timeless art of Daido Moriyama.
