About the publication

In 2015, twelve years after the organization of a landmark solo exhibition of Daido Moriyama, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presented the exhibition Daido Moriyama, Daido Tokyo, featuring a large selection of color photographs by the artist, shedding light on this lesser-known yet ubiquitous aspect of his photographic practice over the last two decades. The Fondation Cartier also commissioned from the artist a slide show of 291 black-and-white photographs, which plunges the viewer into the unrelenting urban hustle and bustle of Tokyo. 
The catalog published in conjunction with the exhibition includes these images as well as a text by the artist, providing a unique occasion to discover Daido Moriyama’s recent work and to rediscover the subjects that are omnipresent in his work and his penchant for textures and shaky compositions.
