Published on the occasion of the exhibition at MAXXI, the catalogue included three different publications in a boxed-set collection: a book with texts and interviews by the authors and curators and two photographic volumes entirely dedicated to Moriyama and Tomatsu’s shots. The result is an immersion in street photography, a vibrant narrative of contemporary Japan, from 1950s-1970s Tokyo, portrayed by Tomatsu with “the look of a stray dog”, to Moriyama’s images, “blurred, grainy, out of focus and deformed, as if they wanted to show what happens when something goes wrong”.
