From the publisher: "Moriyama first attracted international attentiophotographicallyn in the 1970s, with his gritty, black-and-white photographs of Shinjuku, a bustling area of Tokyo. Published for a spring 2012 exhibition at Galerie Alex Daniels-Reflex, Amsterdam, and with more than 230 large-scale images, Journey for Something offers an exciting overview of Moriyama's new work, as well as his classic images and some never-before-seen photographs that have been carefully selected by the artist for this volume. Many of Moriyama's photographs are shot with a hand-held camera, at times through a window or from across the street. Comprising an assortment of playful and almost surrealist images reproduced in large format, Journey for Something follows Moriyama from Tokyo to Osaka, from shimmering rows of nightclubs to shoes dangling from a telephone wire and a man running naked through the streets."
