About the photographer, Daido MORIYAMA ( b. 1938, in Osaka)

After working as an assistant for photographers Takeji IWAMIYA and Eikoh HOSOE, Japanese photographer Daido MORIYAMA went independent in 1964. He has been publishing his works in photography magazines among others. Between 1968 and 1970 he was involved in the photo fanzine 'Provoke', and his style of grainy, high-contrast images that came to be referred to as 'are, bure, boke' (grainy, blurry, out-of-focus) made an impact on the realm of photography.
