Forthcoming through Nazraeli Press, Record No. 12 / Kiroku No. 12 by legendary Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama. In 1972 Moriyama began publication of Kiroku (record) a small, self-published 16 page photographic journal. This initial effort only lasted 5 issues before being put aside, eventually being re-championed by Akio Nagasawa and subsequently published at a rate of 3 per year. As Moriyama's work has always had a tendency toward the personal, the diary format works to his strengths, and the Record series continues to evolve as one of his most engaging works to date. Copies now available for preorder.
Also forthcoming from Nazraeli, two exciting new publications from the legendary Michael Kenna. First is the 2011 Michael Kenna Wall Calendar, the fifteenth installment of what has become a beloved annual publication. This year's calendar is as exquisitely crafted as we've come to expect from Nazraeli and Kenna, presenting 13 photographs printed in "Daido black" ink on an exclusive, uncoated, natural Japanese paper. Nazraeli also recently announced limited distribution of a new expanded edition of Michael Kenna's In Japan:
Conversation with the Land, originally published on the occasion of a major exhibition of Kenna's work at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. Beautifully bound in vellum, with a traditional Japanese thread binding and introduction by Japanese curator Ryuichi Kaneko, only three hundred copies of this stunning publication will be distributed outside of Japan. Both publications now available for preorder.
Also of note, two new titles from publisher Chris Boot. Infidel by photographer Tim Hetherington is a captivating account of a single platoon assigned to an outpost in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan. The camaraderie and vulnerability of these young men is present throughout this series of incredibly engaging and beautifully printed photographs. The images navigate between photographs of combat, portraits, as well as the tattoos these young men wear as a show of solidarity. Where Children Sleep by James Mollson consists of a series of portraits of children from around the world alongside photographs of the children's bedrooms. This series is an interesting view of social, economic and sometimes political living conditions that differ dependent upon cultural and economic status. The cover, which features a child's mobile, is even printed in glow-in-the-dark ink. Both copies now in stock.
