Daido Moriyama: Now and Now

April 4, 2013 | Julia Dawidowicz

Japan’s legendary photographer Daido Moriyama is having his “largest and most comprehensive exhibition” in the US at Steven Kasher. An installation for “DAIDO MORIYAMA: Now and Now” was specifically designed by the photographer himself. The show spans throughout the influential artist’s career, from his iconic 1970’s classics to newer works, like his recent series of silkscreen-on-canvas prints. Even at age 75, Moriyama’s renowned for his bold, gritty images of urbanity and intimacy and his keen eye for “the melancholic beauty of life at its most ordinary.” “DAIDO MORIYAMA: Now and Now,” Daido Moriyama, Mar 28- May 4, Steven Kasher Gallery, Chelsea
