Culture Trip explores the early production and later developments of the acclaimed Japanese street photographer. Enigmatic and seemingly innocuous, the title actually summarized an entire, revolutionary photographic upheaval. Contrary to what his fellow American and European photographers were doing with their well-composed, beautifully toned and elegiac pictures, Daido Moriyama started experimenting with an anti-photographic style. His blurry, grainy, out of focus, starkly contrasted pictures, often unbalanced and even casually framed, were a laugh in the face of what was then traditionally considered a good photograph. Post-Second World War, Tokyo, and Japan more generally, experienced a phenomenal economic growth, which vastly impacted the city in every way.

Discover The Captivating Work Of Acclaimed Japanese Photographer, Daido Moriyama
Contact In Daido Moriyama first published what would eventually be enshrined as a classic of photographic books, albeit one that, like all such modernist classics, must have seemed an abomination at the time. It was originally titled Bye Bye Photography Dear, and its pages were a direct assault on all the preciousness of American and European paradigms of the form. The images were rampantly blurred, grainy, scratched, and often just muddled shades of gray. The compositions were negligible, if they could be called compositions at all. I imagined I could construct a book — a book of pure sensations without meaning — by shuffling into a harmonious whole a series of childish images. Courtesy PowerShovelBooks Now reissued for the first time in his own country, a new edition bears some slight changes befitting its slightly more ceremonial revised name. Farewell Photography is a bit larger than its predecessor, with a cleaned-up white cover and matching slipcase to boot.
