“Moriyama Daido’s Tokyo: Ongoing” is the exhibition catalogue for the large-scale retrospective exhibition “Moriyama Daido’s Tokyo: Ongoing” held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography (June 2 – September 22, 2020).
This compact, sturdy publication – designed by Satoshi Machiguchi – contains all works on display as part of the exhibition and includes images (monochrome & in color) from Moriyama’s ongoing “Record” series, “Pretty Woman” (2007), “K” (2017), and “Tokyo Boogie Woogie” (2018). Similar to the exhibition, the book focuses on the theme of Tokyo seen through the never-restless lens of the Japanese master photographer. In addition to a foreword by Daido Moriyama, the book also contains essays by writer Akiko Otake and photo critic Yoshiaki Kai, shedding light on Moriyama’s photographic practice and his legacy (all texts included in Japanese and English translation).
