Last year in September, approximately 400 prints of my photographs were on display in an exhibition in Modena, Italy. The venue was a former hospital designed in a classical style, the interior of which was entirely refurbished into a museum. The exhibition that took place in a variety of different settings inside the building was based on a plan that I had worked out according to my own ideas, presenting a hand-picked selection of photographs taken between 1964 and 2009. After the show, just for a brief moment, I couldn't help but feel something funny about it all.

My three-day schedule in Modena only allowed me to take some snaps along the way while commuting between the museum and my hotel in the old part of the city. However during a trip down to Florence two days after the exhibition
opening, I managed to spend about half a day walking around town with my camera in hand.

While my work usually revolves around the "radical artification of the city" as a general motto, in Florence, a city of art since ancient times, I couldn't find anything that wasn't already turned into art - to an extent that made me laugh out loud time and again. Once aware of the boorishness of my attempt to turn such a place into art with my camera, I found myself left with no other choice but to return to my daily snapshot routine. As it turned out, the chicks in the streets were remarkably sexy.

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.
