A broad monograph devoted to Daido Moriyama, one of the pre-eminent names in contemporary Japanese photography along with Nobuyoshi Araki, Yasumasa Morimura, and Shomei Tomatsu. Moriyamas photography is provocative, both for the form it takes (dirty, blurry, overexposed, or scratched) and for its content. The viewers experience of the photowhether it captures a place, a person, a situation, or an atmosphereis the central thrust in his work, which vividly and directly conveys the artists emotions. His perspective and cultural background reveals aspects of Japan heretofore unknown. Seeing how he transforms the small, easily overlooked moments of everyday life into scenes of deep significance, the readers will be drawn into an investigation of reality in contemporary life.

Excellent round-up of Moriyama's most well known work.
