Photographer Daido Moriyama reflects on the rebellious youth culture of late 1960s Japan, a period when he and his colleagues were working on the avant-garde photography magazine Provoke (1968–69). He discusses his attempt to deconstruct the medium in his series Shashin yo sayonara Farewell Photography (1972), though it ultimately deconstructed him.
