couverture souple, 120 pages, texte de Daido Moriyama en japonais & anglais
Record est le magazine personnel dont Daido Moriyama publia les premiers numéros à compte d'auteur en 1972-1973, avec l'intention d'un rythme de parution mensuel, avant la reprise du projet en 2006. Avec les années, Record est devenu tout à la fois le journal de bord et le carnet de note de l'artiste. Ou, comme il se plaît à le répéter, sa « ligne de vie » qui court en-deçà de ses multiples projets qui ponctuent son existence.
"I had been acquainted with Nakahira for more than 50 years since back when we were both around 25. From the days he was an editor for the new-left magazine Gendai no me, and through the years after he started working as a photographer - including the time we put out the "PROVOKE photography fanzine -we were connected through both photography and the fact that we both lived in Zushi. Now that I reflect on our companionship, it was quite a passionate affair between the two young blokes that we were. Throughout my life, Nakahira was a "one and only" sort of friend, and a rival at the same time. Even though we couldn't have been more different in terms of both character and constitution, there was one thing that we both shared, and that one thing obviously tied us soundly together.
Nakahira was an exceptionally brillant minded person whose body of work encompasses large amount of remarkable photographers and a number of vivid written statements. It appears to me that my awareness of his presence helped me self-reflect on my work in a rather relative way.
Takuma Nakahira was in all cases an amiable man and friend with a naturally unaffected sense of humor, who every now and then displayed a peculiar kind of lightness.
Now that he is gone, I do miss him a lot."
Daido Moriyama, extrait du prologue de Record n°29
