In Okinawa by legendary Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama the focus is on the streets and people of the city of Okinawa rendered in Moriyama's trademark black and white snap shot style. From the artist: "1974 was the first year that I went to Okinawa and it was exactly a one week stay. Most of the photos in this book are those I took during that trip. However, the purpose of the trip to Okinawa then was not to take photos but for Shomei Tomatsu, Eikoe Hosoe, Masahisa Fukase, Nobuyoshi Araki, and myself who all lived in Tokyo then to conduct a photo workshop with 'Photo Taking' as the main theme for 10 plus photographers and photo lovers living in Okinawa. Each time I found some time in between the 5 day Okinawa workshop schedule, I took along the only camera, a half size, I brought with me and shot approximately 2,000 cuts. I didn't set any theme to work along but hopped from place to place like a bird feeds itself, allowing the towns I encountered for the first time to guide me along." Published by Super Labo, 2013
