Daido Moriyama: A Journey in Ink
Daido Moriyama is recognised as one of Japan’s most influential photographers. Now in his 80’s, Moriyama’s oeuvre includes colour pictures, Polaroids, films, installations and most rare and importantly, silkscreens. Made using deep black ink, the artworks are larger in scale, produced either as unique works or limited editions – a complete reversal to his uneditioned gelatin silver prints. Recognised immediately for their gritty and mysterious style, the artworks pay tribute to the multiple aspects of his oeuvre from his initial projects made in Tokyo in the ’60s to his later influences which would push his work to contemporary, international acclaim.
