Description

From the publisher (from the announcement of the new Series): "We are excited to announce the launch of One Picture Book Two: an upgraded, upscaled follow-up to our much-loved One Picture Book series of artists’ books. Each title will be limited to 500 numbered copies, and will include a removable, signed, original print. The books will be a little bigger, with a fresh design, but the price remains the same. Subscribers to the series are guaranteed a copy of each release for $40, complete with four-volume slipcase. For non-subscribers, individual titles start at $50, with the price increasing as the books sell out. The first four titles of One Picture Book Two will be released in May 2018: DMZ (Korean Demilitarized Zone) by Michael Kenna; Florida Dogs by Tony Mendoza; Lone Ranger by Betty Hahn; and Monument by Carrie Mae Weems. Subsequent releases will include titles by JoAnn Callis, Mark Ruwedel, Daido Moriyama, Susan Zadeh, Laurie Simmons, Michael Mulno, Pablo Ortiz Monasterio, Toshio Shibata, Todd Hido, Mark Steinmetz, Leon Borensztein, Corey Arnold, and many others."

From the publisher (for this title): "Daido Moriyama has been photographing motorcycles on the streets of Tokyo for decades, and for his first contribution to our series One Picture Book Two, we asked him to select his favorite pictures of the subject. The result is Daido Moto. Printed full-bleed with double black ink, the eleven images comprising this book display the sleek, raw power of their subject.

Born in Osaka, Japan in 1938, Daido Moriyama is one of the most influential photographers of his generation. His work is widely exhibited throughout the world, and he is the author and subject of literally dozens of books. Moriyama is known for his images depicting the contrast of traditional values and modern society in post-war Japan, and for his desire to utilize photography in “the fossilization of light”."
