Photographers in Focus: Daido Moriyama

Zooming in on the iconic Japanese street photographer's color work

Arguably East Asia's most famous street photographer, Daido Moriyama has gained an international cult following for his uncompromising, high-contrast black and white shots of Tokyo's bustling streets. A new documentary from Italian director Andrea Cossu made for the exhibition Daido Moriyama, In Color at Carla Sozzani Gallery delves into the world of the master photographer's often-overlooked color works. Shot mostly on commission for magazines between the late 1960s through to the early 1980s?from design and photography publications to Playboy?the saturated snaps capture an entirely different view of the vibrant Japanese metropolis.
