The Foto Colectania Fundation reopens its doors this week after a forced pause because of COVID-19. This gradual renewal of activity also supposes the reopening of the “Daido Moriyama. A Diary” exposition, which can be visited once again from this 3rd of March until the 4th of October.
Moriyama is one of the most prestigious photographers in Japan, praised both for the radical approach in the topics he portrays as well as for his photographic style. His images reflect a subjective and authentic vision of life in the city and the chaos of daily existence.
His work holds a unique place between the illusory and reality. Moriyama turned into the most renowned artist of the Provoke movement, which played an essential role with the liberation of traditional photography and the examination of the nature of the medium. His bold and unyielding style has helped Japanese photography be recognized in an international context.
In the year 2019, he was awarded with the prestigious Hasselblad award, and this exhibit, that can now be seen in Barcelona, and that studies his own figure, has been commissioned by Sara Walker and Louise Wolthers.
At the present time, exhibition rooms reopen with exceptional conditions to guarantee everyone’s safety. These measures Foto Colectania has adopted can be checked here.
