For this second volume in the Witness series, Daido Moriyama, as artist and editor, presents work in which reality collides with imagination. First he presents his own photographs, taken in Shanghai in - a place he had visited for the first time only the year before, but one that had been present in his mind since childhood.

Moriyama also presents the work of two other Japanese artists: Emi Anrakuji's jigsaw puzzle-like portraits of herself - naked, clothed or partially dressed - blur the boundaries between documentary and staged photography. Ken Kitano has photographed numerous people of the same age or having the same occupation, and has then exposed dozens of the negatives, one at a time, onto a single sheet of paper.
