THEME SUMMARY

©︎ Daido Moriyama Photo Foundation
Courtesy of Akio Nagasawa Gallery

A place where people cross each other, a place full of encounters. The energy emitted by streets are chaotic yet evolves each day as if to materialize our human ambitions. On one hand, the cluttered paths that were once filling every corner of the cities have gradully disappeared due to the recent urban developments, on the other, we have reached the time where we can access any location in the world through Google Street. Studying the rapidly changing streets closely along with its past, present and future, we look forward to seeing your work challenging the idea od street snaps and revolutionarizing our preconceptions of street photography.
[Submission Period] from October 15 to January 5

JUDGE

Daido Moriyama
(写真家)

Born in Osaka in 1938. After launching his career as a designer, he became the assistant to Takeji Iwamiya in 1960. He was then, referred by Iwamiya to join the photographic collective VIVO and moved to Tokyo in 1961. With VIVO’s discontinuation, he became the assistant of Eikoh Hosoe and was involved in the production of Ordeal by Roses (Shueisha, 1963). In 1967, he received the New Artist Award from the Japan Photo Critics Association for his works, including the photo series “Nippon Gekijo” published in the photography magazine, Camera Mainichi. From 1968-70, he joined the experimental photography magazine Provoke from its second issue and made a lasting impact on Japanese photography with the release of a radical new style called ‘are-bure-boke’ (‘grainy, blurry, out-of-focus’ in Japanese). In 1974, his works were accepted by the “New Japanese Photography” exhibition that toured museums in the US, including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, Saint Louis Art Museum, and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMoMA). In 1999, a retrospective exhibition of his works was held at the SFMoMa, which then toured other museums including MoMA in New York. Other notable large-scale shows include solo exhibitions in 2003 and 2016 at the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain and the joint exhibition with William Klein at the Tate Modern in 2013. In 2020, he held another solo exhibition, “Moriyama Daido’s Tokyo: ongoing” in Tokyo Photographic Art Museum followed by another joint exhibition with Shomei Tomatsu starting in November titled “Moriyama – Tomatsu : Tokyo” in Maison Européenne de la Photographie (Paris).
