Moriyama Daido's Tokyo: ongoing
Known as a master of snapshots, Moriyama Daido, one of Japan’s preeminent photographers, began his career in the 1960s. His grainy, high-contrast style, which came to be described as “are, bure, boke” (rough, blurry, out of focus), sent shockwaves through the photography world. Over the years, Moriyama has held large exhibitions at museums in a host of different countries, and received countless international photography prizes, including the 2019 Hasselblad Award, and today, 55 years after his debut, he remains active at the forefront of the art world.
Based on the theme of “ongoing,” this exhibition focuses the city of Tokyo as seen through the constantly sprinting Moriyama’s lens in his latest color and monochrome works. We hope that you will enjoy the unceasing allure of Moriyama Daido’s photography.
