About This Item: 
A broad monograph devoted to one of the preeminent names in contemporary Japanese photography Moriyama's photography is provocative, both for the form it takes (Moriyama's photographs may be dirty, blurry, overexposed or scratched) and for its content The viewer's experience of the photo--whether it captures a place, a person, a situation or an atmosphere--is the central thrust in his work, which vividly and directly conveys the artist's emotions The approximately 200 black-and-white images sketch out an original perspective on Japanese society, especially during the period from the 1950s to the '70s During this time, he produced a collection of photographs -- Nippon gekijo shashincho -- which showed darker sides of urban life and relatively unknown parts of cities In them, he attempted to show what was being left behind during the technological advances and increased industrialization in much of Japanese society His work was often stark and contrasting within itself--one image could convey an array of senses, all without using color His work was jarring, yet symbiotic to his own fervent lifestyle In addition, the artist has included a number of photos shot in the past decade to complete this volume
