Daido Moriyama, Shashin Jidai 1981–1988

There’s been no shortage of Daido love this year, but it’s been well deserved of course — he’s been on red hot form! This total beast presents, in full for the first time, the long-lost serials Daido published in Shashin Jidai, the erotic photo magazine that exploded in Japan in the 80s. It’s a literal page-turner and comes with a pink poster. Brace yourself for the heart palpitations.

Shashin Jidai 1981–1988’ is co-published by Session Press and Dashwood Books, £65.
