Provoke was a Japanese magazine from the 1960s that defied commercial imagery and the conventions of documentary photography.
Established in Tokyo in 1968 by Daido Moriyama, Takuma Nakahira, Takahiko Okada, Yutaka Takanashi, and Koji Taki, Provoke was a magazine that explored Japan's socio-political landscape through a radically inventive style. Despite its brief existence with only three issues, the publication had a profound impact, revolutionising photography both within and beyond Japan. The influence of the work featured in its pages continues to resonate in the practices of new generations of image-makers today.

Works on paper and some originals don't come with a COA.
