Daido Moriyama (b. 1938), one of Japan’s most influential photographers, has created an innovative body of work, often depicting the breakdown of traditional values in postwar Japan. Moriyama emerged from the Provoke movement of the ’60s, which challenged Japan’s rigid artistic formalities. He was influenced by his contemporary Shomei Tomatsu, as well as the work of William Klein, Andy Warhol’s silkscreened newspaper images, and the writings of Jack Kerouac. His images have a gritty, high-contrast black-and-white aesthetic, or “are, bure, boke” (grainy, blurry, out-of-focus), and concentrate on little-seen parts of the city to reveal the fragmentary nature of modern life. The only survey of his work in English, this book beautifully reproduces Moriyama’s pictures and includes two newly translated texts on the artist: “The Myth of the City” by Koji Taki and “Reconsidering ‘Grainy, Blurry, Out-of-focus’” by Minoru Shimizu.… (more)
