ONE PICTURE BOOK #90: SELF by Daido Moriyama

日本人写真家、森山大道の作品集。アメリカの出版社「NAZRAELI PRESS」が手がけるプリント付き作品集シリーズ『ONE PICTURE BOOK』の第90巻。

アーティストによるオリジナル作品を手軽に購入できるよう1998年に同出版社によって考案されたこのシリーズは、各タイトル500部限定発行、装丁やページ数が統一された手に取りやすいサイズで作られており、サイン入りのオリジナルプリントが書籍に添付されている。本シリーズは2016年に100タイトルで完結し、続編としてリニューアルした『ONE PICTURE BOOK TWO』へと移行している。

At some point in the mist that was the 1990s, Daido Moriyama was asked by a curator to provide a self-portrait for use in an exhibition. Finding that he had nothing suitable, Moriyama reached for some lipstick and mascara - and although he found that being a makeup artist wasn’t among his best talents - created this suite of self-portraits that are in turn humorous, touching, sad, and extremely odd. It’s hard to imagine another artist who could pull this off, and this series is perfectly suited for our 90th One Picture Book. Limited quantity at this price.

NAZRAELI PRESS' popular One Picture Book series was conceived in 1998 as a way to make original artwork affordable. The series consists of uniformly designed, modestly-sized hardcover books, comprising 16 pages that serve as a “canvas” for the artist to display one cohesive body of work. Each title is limited to 500 numbered copies and includes an original tipped-in photograph, signed on the verso by the artist. The One Picture Book series ended in 2016 with its 100th title and has now moved to a new upgraded One Picture Book Two series.
