Exhibition at the Cartier Foundation for contemporary art until 5th June 2016
Photographer Daido Moriyama (born in 1938) takes us along on his tour through Japan, sharing his fascination with the untameable city that is Tokyo. Camera-in-hand he wanders, since the late 90s, the narrow streets of the frenetic neighbourhood called Shinjuku. Daido Moriyama grabs, without filter and from every angles, residents and their strange, sometimes unexpected environment.
It is a jumble of faded billboards, unusually shaped pipework, luscious lips, fishnet stockings and stray dogs (a term he chooses to qualify himself). All in full colour! Indeed, after having devoted an exhibition to the black and white pictures of the artist in 2003, the Cartier Foundation presents us today with his colour photographs.
However, lovers of black and white can rest assured, a second room houses a giant slide show with 25 minutes packed with contrasts!
