Daido Moriyama

Japan, 1938
Daido Moriyama is a Japanese street photographer best known for his confrontational, black-and-white images depicting the disintegration of traditional values in post-war Japan. His influence on the medium of photography has been profound, notably for his rejection of technical precision in favor of more expressive, grainy, and high-contrast images.

Born on October 10, 1938 in Osaka, Japan, Moriyama studied graphic design before taking lessons with photographer Takeji Iwamiya. He moved to Tokyo in 1961 and worked as an assistant to the experimental filmmaker and photographer Eikoh Hosoe, and began producing and publishing his own collections of urban photography.

In 1967, Moriyama was awarded the New Artist Award from the Japan Photo-Critics Association, and in 2012 he received a joint retrospective with William Klein at the Tate Modern in London. His work has been shown around the world, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in 1999, and The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1974. He lives and works in Tokyo, Japan.
