Tales of Tono was first published in 1976 and takes its name from a collection of Japanese rural folk legends. This first UK edition is a compact little volume composed of black-and-white photo diptychs and spreads that were shot in the countryside of northern Honshu, Japan. It contains a text by the artist that offers the reader a typically honest and self-effacing account of Moriyama’s thoughts about his practice. More than 30 years since its original publication, Tales of Tono gives a fantastic insight into one of the world’s most original and provocative photographers.
