Daido Moriyama: The 80s, Vintage Prints

Memory of Dog 3 Daido Moriyama... Memory of Dog 3 (1982, Vintage gelatin silver, printed 1982, 10 x 12 inches). From the exhibition Daido Moriyama: The 80s, Vintage Prints at Steven Kasher Gallery in New York. "...The 1980s finds Moriyama at his most lyrical. With the extreme provocations of his 60s and 70s work behind him, he turns to a plainer, more centered investigation of everyday life. His camera and his printing (he makes all his prints himself) are voracious, hungry all the time. He seems to be intent on finding beauty and meaning in every scrap and horizon that the sun reveals to his eye. The vintage prints in this show have an immediacy and rawness not found in the modern prints that are usually on the market."
