You could see 64 images of flowers of Daido Moriyama in each photograph for over 40 years in this book. The large-flowered rose in monochrome of 1964 was used as the main image of his solo exhibition at Cartier Foundation in 2004. The cover of the book firstly published in 1998 "memories of a dog: a final chapter" is a withered sunflower. Also, the last page of "Kyoku/Erotica" which is gathering snapshots after 2000 was sunflowers. That image of the hill filled with sunflowers was a impressive motif of the same titled exhibition in 2006. The title "sunflower" means one of Daido's main subjects and a symbol of his flowers' images.

Sunflower is No.2 in Match and Company's lovely MMM Label limited edition series by Moriyama and concerns itself with floral motifs, some obvious, some subtle.
