■ DAIDO MORIYAMA" RECORD：No.25" e-Book Version
"No matter what other factors may come into play, what I associate with Okinawa is first and foremost a very personal condition of being irradiated and embraced by "light". The light in the back-alleys of Naha; the light that completely environs a certain beach; the light that illuminates the avenues around the military base; and the light that showers the gusuku (castle) hills. To me, the light of Okinawa always presents itself with a particular kind of quality." -DAIDO MORIYAMA (Experts from the original text of Record No.25)
The content in this issue are the photographs taken during the exhibition "Daido Moriyama:Endless Works N/S" (2014) which took place at Okinawa Prefectural Museum and Art Museum(January 23rd - March 23rd, 2014).
What is DAIDO MORIYAMA's "RECORD"?
"It was 34 years ago, back in 1972, that I came out with the self-published photo journal 'Kiroku.' At the time, I was busy with all sorts of work for magazines. Partly because of a daily feeling inside that I shouldn't let myself get carried away by it all, I came up with the idea of a small, self-published personal photo journal. Without any ties to work or any fixed topic, I just wanted to continue publishing a 16-page booklet with an arbitrary selection of favorite photos among the pictures I snapped from day to day. By nature, it was directed first and foremost to myself rather than other people. I wanted a simple, basic title, so I called it 'Kiroku' (record). "
However, the publication of 'Kiroku' sadly ended with issue number five. Now, thanks to the willpower and efforts of Akio Nagasawa, 'Kiroku' the magazine has resumed publication. Or rather, we should call it a fresh publication. With the hope that it will continue this time, I am selfishly thinking of asking Mr. Nagasawa to publish 'Kiroku' at a pace of four issues per year. I happily accept his proposal and look forward now to embarking on a new 'voyage of recording.'"- Daido Moriyama
