"The young lady who coolly crosses my path is a work of art. The middle-aged man sitting on the sidewalk in front of her is also a work of art. The middle-aged woman feverishly shopping in a crowded store is also a work of art. The cat stretching and yawning on the wall over there is also a work of art. The young guy in Kabukicho, the couples walking in the love hotel district, and the drunks in Golden-Gai are all, through and through, works of art. In other words, the city of Tokyo is filled with art and all of its people are works of art. What about me, walking around with my digital camera, clicking away, and taking photos of this, that, and the other? Might I be a work of art too?" - March 7, 2012 Daido Moriyama.
