Reflex Amsterdam is proud to present a two-month solo exhibition of works by Daido Moriyama, Japan's foremost photographer. This will be a timely opportunity to view an extensive collection of both iconic and new work by the photographer prior to the major show William Klein + Daido Moriyama at Tate Modern, London, later this year.
About the artist
Tokyo-based Japanese artist Daido Moriyama (*1938, Ikeda-City, Osaka) initially trained in graphic design before taking up photography. He trained as an assistant under Takeji Iwamiya and Eikoh Hosoe until becoming an independent photographer in 1964, publishing his first books Nippon Gekijo Shashincho in 1968 and Shashin yo Sayounara in 1972, both depicting the darker sides of urban life and the city of Tokyo.
