As part of the exhibition Daido Moriyama . Retrospective delphi LUX shows the documentary The Past is Always New, The Future is Always Nostalgic:
Photographer Daido Moriyama (*1938) is still active as an artist. He is probably the most prominent and last charismatic figure in the world of photography. He has received numerous awards worldwide, including the Infinity Award for lifetime achievement from the International Center for Photography in New York (2012). In 2019, he was awarded the Hasselblad Foundation International Prize for Photography. Daido Moriyama nonchalantly transcends art, fashion and design. This intimate portrait follows two men, a graphic designer and a publisher, over the course of a year as they set out to capture Moriyama's creative process. The end result is a coffee table book.
