Tales of Tono, first published in 1976, features work shot in the countryside of northern Honshu, Japan. Taking its name from a collection of Japanese rural folk legends, its non-narrative diptychs display a nascent nostalgia, whilst the formal qualities of the photos embrace the grainy and raw techniques that Moriyama brought to his more urban subject matter.” - from the English reissue by the Tate

«Tales of Tono, publié pour la première fois en 1976, présente des œuvres tournées dans la campagne du nord de Honshu, au Japon. Tirant son nom d'une collection de légendes folkloriques japonaises, ses diptyques non narratifs affichent une nostalgie naissante, tandis que les qualités formelles des photos embrassent les techniques granuleuses et brutes que Moriyama a apportées à son sujet plus urbain.” - écrits de la réédition anglaise de la Tate
