Mizuma, Kips & Wada Arts presents Daido Moriyama
Mizuma, Kips & Wada Art is very delighted to announce our upcoming exhibition, “Ango Daido” by renowned Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama.
Moriyama was born in Osaka in October, 1938. While he was actively working as a designer, he moved to Tokyo in 1961 to pursue his career in photography. After working as an assistant of Hosoe Eikou, he shifts to become a freelance photographer.
His unique style that emphasized sensibility of “are・bure・boke” collected an enormous attention globally, and he has since received numerous awards, including Photographic Society of Japan Newcomer’s Award. In 2019, he became a fourth Japanese photographer to be awarded The Hasselblad International Award in Photography, which is considered a “Nobel Prize of photography.”
Starting with Ango, the series of photographs that Moriyama shot based on Sakaguchi Ango’s short story, In the Forest, Under Cherries in Full Bloom, this exhibition will carry number of works that have not been exhibited previously. We cordially invite you to see and experience this wonderful series of works. We look forward to seeing you at our venue.
