Daido Moriyama: A Diary

Hasselblad Award



ISBN: 9783960986621 Category:


A celebration of Daido Moriyama, published to mark his winning 2019 Hasselblad Award and his highly influential, lifelong radical and authentic approach to photography

With its generous image flow, this book celebrates Daido Moriyama as the 2019 Hasselblad Award winner and his highly influential, lifelong radical and authentic approach to photography. A Diary points to his continuous, daily photographic expeditions, resulting in an oeuvre charged with fragments, repetitions, chance and chaos. His production of images is enormous, and whereas some photographs have become iconic and reappear in numerous books and exhibitions, it is always possible to encounter more unknown works. In order to exemplify the long term and wide range impact of Daido Moriyama’s photography, this publication not only presents an overview and analysis of his work by Sandra Phillips, but it also includes shorter personal notes from people who has encountered and worked with him over the years: Simon Baker, Mark Holborn, Hervé Chandès, Nick Rhodes and Ishiuchi Miyako
