06/10/2023 - 11/02/2024

For more than sixty years, Daido Moriyama (森山 大道 b. 1938) has used his camera to interrogate and revolutionise the way we look at the world with his dense, grainy images. Even today, Moriyama’s pioneering artistic spirit and visual intensity remain groundbreaking. The exhibition traces the path of a photographer who transformed the way we see photography and questioned the very nature of photography itself.
