Putting my upcoming work in Mexico City and Säo Paulo aside for the meantime, Tokyo is the place I feel most attracted to right now. For several years, in a completely natural, even inevitable way, Tokyo has emerged in the heart of my mind as my next target….
Though I've already lived some 47 years in Tokyo, I could hardly say that I really know the city well. Even though I have the impression that my camera and I have trekked quite a lot through Tokyo, shooting here and there, I've long had the uneasy feeling that my coverage of most neighborhoods has more holes in it than Swiss cheese. I hope that such a project will allow me to appease that feeling. For example, I'd like to begin by walking around Tateishi, Aoto or Koiwa along the Keisei Railway. Yes, that's probably the way I'Il be making a living a few years down the line. And then, l'Il probably return to Shinjuku once again.
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".
