Daido Moriyama born in 1938 in Osaka is one of the most important Japanese photographers since 1945. His work plays a central role in establishing Japanese photography as one of the most creative directions in the history of photography. During the “Provoke Era” at the end of the 1960s/beginning of the 1970s Moriyama made a significant contribution to the development of photography and his influence on younger Japanese artists continues up until today.
