Daido Moriyama


Mark Holborn, Daido Moriyama


An exceptional selection of photographs from Record, Daido Moriyama’s self-curated journal, published in the early 1970s and from 2006 to the present day


Record is drawn from the first thirty issues of Daido Moriyama’s personal publication, dating back to its origins in the seventies. The magazine provided a diaristic platform for this extraordinary photographer. Beside the pictures taken on his familiar ground in Tokyo and Osaka, Moriyama photographed the streets of New York, Los Angeles, Florence, Paris and London as he would have recorded the lanes and alleys of his hometowns. Once regarded as the leading Japanese photographer of his generation, Moriyama has come to transcend such a description. He is an artist in constant motion and his subject matter is both stark and universal.
