Record is the personal magazine which Daido Moriyama first self-published in 1972-1973, intended as monthlies, until the rebirth of the project in 2006. Over the years, Record has become the artist's personal diary and notebook. Or, as he likes to put it, his 'lifeline' that runs underneath the numerous projects that punctuate his existence.

"When I look back on the nearly 50 years I?ve been working as a photographer, the long path behind me seems like a long roll of film. It was a path of steps ups and downs, winding and sometimes twisted, but never really smooth. At its very end in the distant past I can see the pulsating cityscape ot Osaka, the place where I encountered the live of my life: photography. When I think about it now, it was a tender but rather difficult kind of love.

?Kiroku? Vol. 11 is dedicated to a series of photographs taken in Osaka last summer, while walking around the city with a slight sense of nostalgia."
