Looking at a collection of photographs by Daido Moriyama is like hurtling through the city in a cab, spinning your head from side to side, up and down, to take in all the action. And the action doesn't stop with the click of Moriyama's shutter. As critic Patrick Remy notes in his introduction, "He endlessly plunges into his contact prints, tirelessly reprints his images, re-centers them, prints them horizontally or vertically to achieve the desired format at the time... enough to make you lose yourself in the maelstrom of his photos (his complete works list 5,758 references)." Close-ups of red, red lips and meticulously manicured hands (except for a bandage on the index finger--what happened?), snowy cityscapes, lonely hotel rooms, storefronts, beautiful women and a pig--no subject escapes him. Like Atget, whom he admires, Moriyama freezes urban evanescence, and like Hosoe, whom he assisted, he uncovers the intimate.

We are pleased to offer a limited quantity of signed copies of Daido Moriyama's "Journey for Something" (the unsigned trade edition is now sold out). Moriyama first attracted international attention 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.

Contact sheets ordinarily don't leave the confines of a photographer's studio. They are meant for the photographer's eyes alone-a tool to aid in the hunt for a single frame to enlarge and print. The contact sheets reproduced in this volume, however, no longer serve that purpose. Instead, they offer a means of reconsideration, a vehicle for the photographer Daido Moriyama to review the span of his career and to recompose his work. The pages of this publication reproduce a series of individual contact sheets that Moriyama has created by mixing together negatives from disparate rolls of film. In a single sheet, work from different periods of his fifty-year-long career are juxtaposed by the artist. Work shot in the 1960s, for example, appears alongside images shot recently. While each sheet has a certain theme, taken as a whole, each individual frame is given equal standing regardless of its chronology or provenance; Moriyama makes Iittle or no distinction between each instance of the shutter's release. Contact-printed negatives of Moriyama's best-known images appear side-by-side with previously unselected and unreleased material, radicaily flattening the traditionai hierarchy of the "masterpiece." Instead, the totality of his work reveals volumes more than singular, isolated images.

Recent decades have seen photography’s privileged relationship to the real come under question. Spurred by the postmodern critique of photography in the 1980s and the rise of digital technologies soon thereafter, scholars have been asking who and what built this understanding of the medium in the first place. Photography and Doubt reflects on this interest in photography’s referential power by discussing it in rigorously historical terms. How was the understanding of photographic realism cultivated in the first place? What do cases of staged and manipulated photography reveal about that realism’s hold on audiences across the medium’s history? Have doubts about photography’s testimonial power stimulated as much knowledge as its realism? Edited by Sabine T. Kriebel and Andrés Mario Zervigón, Photography and Doubt is the first multi-authored collection specifically designed to explore these questions. Its 13 original essays, illustrated with 73 color images, explore cases when the link between the photographic image and its referent was placed under stress, and when photography was as attuned to its myth-making capabilities as to its claims to authenticity. Photography and Doubt will serve as a valuable resource for students and scholars in art history, visual and media studies, philosophy, and the history of science and technology.
