Last night the International Center of Photography Bookstore was packed with folks eager to meet Daidō Moriyama and have their special edition of COLOR signed.
COLOR was published to commemorate Moriyama’s receipt of ICP’s 2012 Infinity Award for Lifetime Achievement this week. It measuring 10 x 7”, has 312 pages filled with Moriyama’s recent color images (a departure from his high contrast, grainy, black and white photographs) and has no text whatsoever.
COLOR’s cover is metallic silver with die cuts for one of twenty small c-print. Last night, the purchaser’s got to pick their print and the book’s title, COLOR, was stamped by hand on each publication before being passed to Moriyama for his signature.
Any unsold copies are available through the ICP store.
