Daido Moriyama’s third monograph Shashin yo Sayonara – Bye bye Photography (写真よさようなら) published by Shashin Hyoron-sha is an earthquake of images. Grainy out of focus, blurry, strong-contrast visuals, angry and full of raw energy. Even forty years after its first publication it remains one of the most powerful photography books ever.
