Daido Moriyama is a prolific photographer, he has from the beginning of his career been engaged with photobooks. When someone works in this way photobooks are a great choice for the dissemination of their work.
In an interview with Moriyama he said that he didn’t want to have a show of photographs. Instead he borrowed a Canon copy machine, and made copies of his images, which he then stapled together. The quality was poor, the toning inconsistent, and parts of the images were missing. This image degradation was immediately interesting to Moriyama, he felt that this was an appropriate treatment for his publication Another Country : New York.
I have enjoyed making the zine, Ruscha accordion book, pamphlet and book dummies for this module. I am aiming to continue to explore these avenues in the upcoming modules.
