“Daido Moriyama: A Retrospective” curated by Thyago Nogueira at The Photographer’s Gallery, London

“Daido Moriyama: A Retrospective”, an exhibition curated by Thyago Nogueira on view at The Photographer’s Gallery, London.

The first UK retrospective of work by the acclaimed Japanese photographer, Daido Moriyama (b.1938) features over 200 works, spanning from 1964 until the present day. Taking over the whole Gallery, this exhibition celebrates one of the most innovative and influential artists and street photographers of our day. Championing photography as a democratic language, Moriyama inserted himself up close with Japanese society, capturing the clash of Japanese tradition with an accelerated Westernization in post-war Japan. The exhibition showcases many of his rare photobooks and magazines that will give visitors unrivalled access to abundant archival and visual material to view, read and discover.

On view until February 11th at the Photographer’s Gallery, London.
