Daido Moriyama: Tokyo Boogie Woogie
"..when I received the offer to make this book, I knew that I wanted it to be entirely graphical, or kitsch and pop, primarily featuring somewhat tawdry and erotic images. With this aim in mind, Tokyo was the perfect place. Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ikebukuro, Asakusa, Ginza...Every corner of Tokyo is stunningly chaotic, teeming with a myriad of components that make up cities, like an overturned toy box or Pandora's box left open, giving me a thrilling feeling as I walk through the mishmash with my camera in hand."
The result is a small and dense book of vivid colour images capturing the sound of Tokyo's streets, the "Tokyo Boogie Woogie".Title: Tokyo Boogie Woogie
