Organised by Marc Jancou Contemporary and hosted by the Art Kiosk, Rougemont and the Saanen Vitrine, Switzerland
December 15, 2022 – January 15, 2023
Marc Jancou Contemporary are delighted to present an exhibition by Daido Moriyama, one of Japan’s most influential photographers.
Best known for his black-and-white street photography, in his images Moriyama makes use of sharply tilted angles, grainy textures, harsh contrasts, and blurred movements to capture human experience in the changing urban environment as seen through the photographer’s wandering gaze, while many of his most celebrated works from the 1960s and 1970s are read through the lens of post-war reconstruction following Japan’s American occupation.
The present exhibition brings together a large selection of images which span the multiple facets of the photographer’s oeuvre, including his trademark street images to domestic still lives and the more provocative Tights series. The photographs are accompanied by an equally large selection of publications which include several of Moriyama’s photo-essays and photo-books as well as monographs and other selected books on his life and work.
The exhibition is organised by Marc Jancou Contemporary and hosted by the Art Kiosk in Rougemont and the Saanen Vitrine in Saanen, Switzerland. The show is accompanied by a limited edition calendar for 2023 featuring a selection of twelve images also included in the show.
The show will be on view from the 15th of December 2022 to the 15th of January 2023.
