Daido Moriyama: Record 46
For Daido Moriyama, it all started 60 years ago, when he arrived in Tokyo with his old Canon camera and snapped his first picture on the square in front of Shinjuku Station’s east exit. Since that day, he has been taking an endless stream of photographs of the district known as Shinjuku. For him, it became an irreplaceable “hometown” for his photography, an inescapable metropolis with its very real and actual presence, wild and erotic charm, and labyrinthine puzzle of storefronts and streets, skyscrapers and scenesters. All the pictures in this volume of ‘Record’ were shot recently in the Kabukicho/Shinjuku area.
