Product Description

Daido Moriyama, a legendary figure in Japanese photography, is to be the subject of a solo exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour lart contemporain from December 2015 to March 2016. Moriyama invented a new visual language in his work from the mid- 1960s onwards. Frenetic and tormented, it depicted a reality that was grainy, blurry and out-of-focus. In 2004, the Fondation Cartier pour lart contemporain organized a landmark solo exhibition of Moriyamas black and white work. His lesser-known colour photography will feature in this latest exhibition. Depicting underground neighbourhoods in the Japanese capital a favorite location for the photographer these exclusively colour images reference the motifs that are omnipresent in the artists work, as well as his penchant for textures and shaky compositions.
