Published on the occasion of the major retrospective 2003 exhibition Daido Moriyama: Hunter of Light, 1965-2003, at the Shimane Art Museum, the Kawasaki City Museum, and the Kushiro Art Museum, Hokkaido. From Japan's Metropolis magazine: "Though Moriyama's work has appeared in numerous exhibitions, photo journals and books, this is his first retrospective in Japan (in 1999 the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art organized a separate retrospective which toured the US and Europe). It covers Moriyama's nearly 40-year career chronologically-from his 1965 Silent Theater series to new work in the Shinjuku series-through 240 vintage prints (nearly all black and white) and 80 books, magazines, posters, paintings and other materials."
