Mazutashikarashisa No Sekai Wo Suteru (First, Throw Out Verisimilitude; alternate translation, 'First, Discard the World of Pseudo-Certainty'). Koji Taki and Nakahira Takuma, eds. Contributions from Michie Amano, Takahiko Okada, Yutaka Takanashi, Koji Taki, and Daido Moriyama. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers. Matching dust jacket. Numerous black-and-white illustrations.
 
As Kotaro Iizawo explains in i>The History of Japanese Photography, the aim of the enormously influential Provoke movement was to "rethink the rigidified relation between word and image, and to create 'new language, in short, new thought.'" Founded by Koji Taki and Nakahira Takuma in late 1968 (Daido Moriyama joined the group for their second issue), the group produced "fragmented images that completely demolished the established aesthetic and grammar of photography." In keeping with the tumultuous events of that year, the artists of Provoke were fierce in their desire to do away with received ideas and meanings ("the world of pseudo-certainty"). And, in true avant-garde spirit, theirs was a frontal assault on the medium and the institutions in which they were working. As individuals, however, they were constantly at odds with one another; Provoke, their house organ, ceased publication in August 1969 after only three issues. This volume, published a year after the dissolution of the group, represents their final statement. It contains five portfolios, Provoke 1-5, and six texts, Predict 1-6. The portfolios are by Nakahira, Moriyama, Takanashi, Taki, and Taki & Moriyama. The texts are by Taki, Okada, Moriyama, Amano, Takanashi and Nakashira.
