Daido Moriyama – Daido Tokyo

Daido Moriyama - Daido Tokyo

Twelve years after his first exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in 2003, the eminent Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama returns to the foundation for a new exhibition that focuses on his recent work DAIDO TOKYO - February 6 › June 5, 2016. Featuring a large selection of color photographs, Daido Tokyo sheds light on this lesser-known yet ubiquitous aspect of his photographic practice over the last two decades. The Fondation Cartier has also commissioned a new work from Moriyama in conjunction with the exhibition. Entitled Dog and Mesh Tights, this immersive multiscreen projection of black and white photographs plunges viewers into the commotion of the contemporary city, capturing fragments of daily life from its unrelenting urban hustle and bustle.

The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain has published two lithographs created with photographs from Daido Moriyama’s Dog and Mesh Tights series (2014–15) and printed by Idem in Paris.
