    Aipad 2015 - Special Feature April 14, 2015
    Daido Moriyama (b. 1938) is one of Japan's leading figures in photography.  Witness to the spectacular changes that transformed post WWII Japan, his black and white photographs express a fascination with the cultural contradictions of age-old traditions that persist within modern society.  Providing a harsh, crude vision of city life and the chaos of everyday existence, strange worlds and unusual characters, his work occupies a unique space between the objective and the subjective, the illusory and the real.
    Moriyama moved to Tokyo in 1961 where he assisted photographer Eikoh Hosoe for three years and became familiar with the trenchant social critiques produced by photographer Shomei Tomatsu.  He also drew inspiration from William Klein's confrontational photographs of New York, Andy Warhol's silkscreened multiples of newspaper images, and the writings of Jack Kerouac.
    Moriyama's work has been collected by numerous prominent public and private collections, recent major solo and two-person shows have been held at SFMOMA, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Photography in Tokyo and the Tate Modern in London.
