Inscribed to Hilary Gerrard. Presentation copy, inscribed to Hilary Gerrard. Shashin yo Sayonara is the central book of the Provoke movement, born out of Moriyama's perceived limitations of Provoke's manifesto and photography as a medium. The resulting combination of images re-photographed from newspapers, magazines, television screens, other people's negatives, and his own pictures composed mainly of out-takes, scratched frames, and blurred images was sequenced by two editors at Shashin Hyoron-sha in a seemingly random order to create a visual manifestation of the overpowering density of life in modern Japan.

First edition, presentation copy inscribed by Moriyama in black ink on the title-page; 4to (230 x 181 mm, 9 x 7¼ in); black-and-white photographs printed in gravure, transcript of a conversation between Moriyama Daido and Nakahira Takuma, minor spotting to top edge; plain endpapers, ghost mark from bookseller's label, printed wrappers, black, grey, and blue, minor reading crease, printed white dust-jacket, text in black, blue, and grey, trivial wear along spine-fold, publisher's red order slip laid in, fine; 308, [2]pp.
