Moriyama’s extensive oeuvre has been for the most part a love letter to Shinjuku, the bustling area of Tokyo where businessmen, tourists, prostitutes and hipsters jostle the brightly lit streets. The business and political epicenter of Japan, Shinjuku is also home to the city’s vices – the entertainment district Kabukicho, notorious for its gangster activity, brothels and strip clubs. His strikingly grainy black and white images harness this cocktail of rawness and power, its electric energy and its seedy underbelly. With an eye for the unusual or the absurd, whether in his still life work, or in his images of New York or continental Europe, there is also a playful edge to Moriyama’s work that brings to mind the surrealist photographers of the 1920s.

Text taken from the introduction “Tokyo Drifter” written by Marcel Feil (Deputy Director of Artistic Affairs of Foam Photography Museum Amsterdam) for the book “Tokyo” (Reflex Editions Amsterdam).
