    …Moriyama’s Bye Bye Photography is like a bad psychedelic trip. I wanted to go to the end of photography,’ he said of probably the most extreme photobook ever made. If Atget gave us the French flaneur, leisurely strolling through the streets of Paris, Moriyama gives us the lone outsider, speeding through the streets of a Blade Runner-type Tokyo.
