"Even if photography paper and developing fluid would be disappeared, I would not be caring about. I will go to supermarket to buy eggs and vinegar to make cyanotype prints under sunlight using white and vinegar."
— Daidō Moriyama 森山 大道

I stood amidst the cardboard architecture, shelves, stalls and stools - structure creating space - turning the pages of the elegant hardcover that is Daido Moriyama's white and vinegar.

Published by a Tokyo-based creative design studio called Match & Co, the photobook glides out of its cardboard slipcase. There's a certain tactile feeling because of this, and again when you run your fingers over the debossed words scoring the stark white cover. I feel like I'm touching italics; that this is the fingertaste of an italicised word.

The touch and feel and smell of books oft shelve my thoughts of investing in an e-reader. Or maybe I'm just a luddite and my mother's constant admonitions that almost anything which emits radiation is carcinogenic have infiltrated my psyche?

I stood slightly hunched, quietly lost in the textual musings penned by Moriyama over 40 years. The words always on the left, flanking black and white Polaroid images on The Impossible Project film. The photos are often 'are, bure, bokeh' - grainy, rough, out of focus, streaky, etc. Moriyama says that if you think about it, a normal human being will in one day perceive an infinite number of images, and some are focused upon; others are barely seen out of the corner of one's eye. There's just something I like about those discarded moments.

I'm thinking about going back tomorrow to get the book, if I can. The inaugural Melbourne Art Book Fair is on until then. I wish that you were here to come with, but maybe when you hold the book and feel its weight, we'll share that same feeling, developing in time and light.
