Daido Moriyama – In Pictures



Daido Moriyama uses an ordinary compact camera and never stops shooting. The artist is the most celebrated photographer to emerge from the Japanese Provoke movement of the 1960s.

In this film Moriyama invites us into his studio and takes us on a walk around the atmospheric Shinjuku neighbourhood, his home from home in Tokyo.

Moriyama’s work was featured in the exhibition William Klein + Daido Moriyama at Tate Modern, 10 October 2012 – 20 January 2013.

    0:56 "I slice into time, seeing the moment."

    No moment was captured there. It was a point and shoot photograph, and what he does is look through hundreds of these images he made, and then selecting those that he deems worthy of artistic expression.

    I was once fascinated by this man, and his style of photography. But now that I am a photographer myself, I have become skeptical, and anything but impressed by his work– which seems random at best.

    I love the idea of such an artist using basic camera the likes of everyone can own but never equal

    I know this is a bit late but if anyone could help, what camera did you use to shoot this documentary? I find it to be a great pairing with his own work but am moving into filmmaking, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    The camera is a Nikon S9100 for those that dosen't know. He don't use a Ricoh anymore. And also you can see that he zooms at a moment. Ricoh gr have only 18.3 focal(28mm eqiv because sensor) fixed focal-not zoom at all.

    I love this, and thanks for the tasteful editing, very filmic and the music fits great.
    Got to love how he just shoots and doesn't care what people think about gear, age, method, etc. etc.

    you don't need a DSLR to take good photos, it's all about how you incorporate with a camera.

    I love this film too, Moriyama is incredible – 73 and still shooting the streets. We'll keep making the videos if you keep watching .
