Bio：Daido Moriyama is a Japanese photographer known for his black and white images that capture the forgotten areas and darker sides of his home country. He was born in Osaka in 1938 and moved to Tokyo in 1961, where he began producing his own collection of photographs after working as an assistant to photographer and filmmaker Eikoh Hosoe. Moriyama’s early work was influenced by the ‘Provoke’ group, which published three magazines illustrated almost entirely with photography. He joined the movement for the second issue of the magazine, which solidified a type of Japanese aesthetic for ‘grainy, blurry and out of focus’ images. Moriyama’s work is primarily about the use of photography as an experiment, hovering between the realm of document and possibility, fact and fiction.
