From the publisher: "This catalog was published for the solo exhibition 'Tsugaru,' held at Taka Ishii Gallery in November 2010. This book includes 82 photographs in total: 81 were taken in Goshogawara and other villages in the Tsugaru-plain area of Aomori Prefecture in 1976, while the final photograph was taken on a more recent visit to the area. This is one of Moriyama's most representative works from 70s, a time when he set out for Hokkaido and Tohoku while searching for new ways of expression after publishing Farewell Photography in 1972."
