Edition of 1000 copies

Mirage is the fourth of Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama's limited-edition publications with MMM editions. For this volume, Moriyama unearthed a selection of previously unpublished color slides from the 1970s. The slides have faded over the past four decades, and this volume reproduces them in their present fragile beauty. The works consist of several bondage photographs made on commission, and images shot for Japanese Playboy. Editor Hisako Motoo writes in his afterword: "... after several decades film takes on mildewy discolorations until we're peering at scenes through a blur of frosted glass. As if the crisp coating of reality had worn away over time, misting into hazy mirages of memory."
