When I managed at last to find a gap of a few hours in my busy three-day schedule in Taipei, it made me so happy that I felt the irrepressible urge to go out and shoot enough photos to fill an entire issue of “Record”. However, my limited time allowed me to cover only a limited area, and after consulting some people I knew in the city, it was clear that Lin Sen North Road had to be my destination. But even while taking my pictures I had a TV crew following on my heels, so I can’t say that I was completely free. Nevertheless, the people in those downtown streets in Taipei kind of radiated a kind of body heat that felt so familiar to me that I eventually combed the neighborhood with the same camera- and footwork that I usually do when roaming the streets of Shinjuku.
There was a warm and mellow Silver rain moistening the streets of Taipei on that day.
Daidō Moriyama (Moriyama Daidō, born October 10, 1938) is a Japanese photographer noted for his images depicting the breakdown of traditional values in post-war Japan.
Born in Ikeda, Osaka, Daidō Moriyama studied photography under Takeji Iwamiya before moving to Tokyo in 1961 to work as an assistant to Eikoh Hosoe. He produced a collection of photographs, on "Nippon gekijō shashinchō" Though not exclusively, Moriyama predominantly takes high contrast, grainy, black and white photographs within the Shinjuku area of Tokyo, often shot from odd angles. Moriyama's photography has been influenced by Seiryū Inoue, Shōmei Tōmatsu, William Klein, Andy Warhol, Eikoh Hosoe, the Japanese writer Yukio Mishima, the dramatist Shūji Terayama, and Jack Kerouac's "On the Road".
