Dimensions: 262 x 225 mm

Daido Moriyama’s Kagero is an extremely rare photobook of original work. Published by Haga Shoten, this 1972 publication is the only one of its kind to have featured Moriyama’s ‘nudes’ exclusively. Having taken its title from the Japanese word for Mayfly, the series captures fleeting and momentary scenes of females bound in Kinbaku. Raw and unchoreaographed in its manner, the images relay a heightened sense of anticipation and immediacy of ‘capture’ throughout each scene.
