Daido Moriyama in ColorGalleria Carla Sozzani, Milan

8 November – 10 January, 2016

Daido Moriyama world-renowned Japanese photographer famous for his scathing, often grainy and overexposed black & white photos, its now showing his works at the Galleria Carla Sozzani. His images started to capture Japan from the end of the 60’s to show truly revolutionary glance at Japanese society. Daido in Color includes a selection of 130 unpublished photographs made between the 60’s and 80’s that have never been seen before. In these days of Daido’s crucial exploration, after end of World War II, he created his own lonely and endless journey through images. These are fragments of reality of a country that hangs in the balance between tradition and modernity. Moriyama’s black & white images explain his inner world and the emotions that he feels when exploring the cities streets; they are rich in contrasts and fully reflect his solitary nature. On the other hand, the color images that are now exposed in Milan describe what the artist has seen and met without any filter; they are polite and gentle, exactly how he sets himself towards the world.
