The book »ON DAIDO« is a photographic anthology of statements and homages to the Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama made by internationally acclaimed photographers and writers. This publication is dedicated to him and will be available in a special edition of 500 copies on the occasion of the 7th Fotobookfestival Kassel in June 2015.

Daido Moriyama is undoubtedly one of the most important photographers of all times. But who is this reserved, likeable man from Tokyo, who has affected the development of Japanese photography like no other? Which overwhelming energy is behind this fascinating simplicity in the art of photography? How is it possible that his images, no matter how they are cropped, reproduced, rotated or flipped, still manage to keep their core essence? How does one approach the Daido Moriyama phenomenon? We asked 31 photographers and 21 writers to help us find an answer by way of visual and textual statements. We requested appraisal and acclaim, commentary and feedback. Our request predominantly met with a resoundingly positive response and immediate approval. The resulting anthology ON DAIDO paints a multifaceted picture of the great renewer of photography. Essentially, it does not so much pay homage to an individual, as celebrate the photographic medium as a whole. We are grateful to the photographers and authors for their participation. We wish to carry on spreading and understanding the great work of Daido Moriyama through this anthology

Daido MORIYAMA

森山大道

Born 1938 in Osaka. After working as an assistant for photographers Takeji Iwamiya and Eikoh Hosoe, he went independent in 1964. He has been publishing his works in photography magazines among others, and received a New Artist Award from the Japan Photo Critics Association for Japan: A Photo Theater in 1967. Between 1968 and ’70 he was involved in the photo fanzine Provoke, and his style of grainy, high-contrast images that came to be referred to as “are, bure, boke” (grainy, blurry, out-of-focus) made an impact on the realm of photography. Solo shows at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain in Paris solidified Moriyama’s worldwide reputation, and in 2012, he became the first Japanese to be awarded in the category of Lifetime Achievement at the 28th Annual Infinity Awards hosted by the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York. The “William Klein + Daido Moriyama” exhibition together with William Klein at London’s Tate Modern in 2012-13 was a showdown of two immensely popular photographers that took the world by storm.
