Item description for Daido Moriyama by Daido Moriyama Minoru Shinjuku...

Based on the retrospective exhibition organized by the Andalusian Center of Contemporary Art in Seville in March of 2007, this stunning book offers a new look at the work of Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama. An implacable visionary of our fragmented postmodern world, Moriyama is famous not only for his stark images of urban life but also for his transformation of everyday ordinariness, the stream of perceptions that our restless sense of sight registers at every moment of our waking hours. The volume includes a widely-ranging overview of Moriyma's highly contrasted, oddly-angled black-and-white photographs, including sixteen pages printed on yellow paper, which provides a new and unexpected support for these images. The striking cover of the catalogue is the creation of noted Japanese designer Tadanori Yokoo. The book includes a brief introductory text by Jose Lebrero Stals and a penetrating essay by Minoru Shimizu, which places Moriyama's work in the context of postmodern critical theory on photography, from Benjamin to Barthes to Derrida. Finally, a moving text by Moriyama himself -"Dialogue with Photography"- describes how he succeeded in abolishing the boundaries between subjectivity and objectivity in his art to explore the relentlessly momentary nature of photographs, "fossils of light and time".

Reviews - What do customers think about Daido Moriyama?

Daido Moriyama by Nobuyoshi Araki  Aug 9, 2005
Book is well done - Beautiful photography ! Recommended to anyone that likes great photographs.
Japan and Modernity Collide  May 14, 2002
Some of the finest modern photography from Japan has been produced by Daido Moriyama. Defying any categories (including the "modern" one I gave him above, Moriyama stretches the boundaries of photography and peers into the dark and blurry places that scare us. The book's comments on each photo are extremely worthwhile also, providing an insight into Daido's work that isn't found elsewhere.
Decidedly not Weston  Sep 13, 2001
I've seen several books and articles on Japanese photography that seem to feature bad cameras, low resolution, muddy printing/reproduction. This is one of them. However, the pictures are disturbing, affecting. Some don't work for me.

Does it help to say, I lost a copy of this in a fire, and am buying it back?

Or that I recommend it highly to anybody who thinks they need better equipment to take good photographs.

Daido Moriyma's Stray Dog  Apr 26, 2000
As someone who saw Moriyama's fantastic show at the SF MOMA I had to buy this book. Great gritty black and white photos examining post WWII Japanese Culture. Includes a fairly extensive intro detailing his influences and his career.
