Photo artist Daidō Moriyama (b. 1931) has used his work to investigate our visual culture and the Westernization of Japanese society. Regarded as one of the masters of street photography, Moriyama has also offered a conceptual investigation of the media, less known to audiences outside Japan. Based on original research in his archive and rarely seen publications, this extensive retrospective will offer a new perspective of Moriyama’s prolific career, spanning from his early editorial work of the 1960s to his ongoing Record magazine series.
