After being shown in Sweden, the exhibition by the Japanese photographer reaches Fundació Foto Colectania.
Daido Moriyama was the Provoke movement’s most prominent artist, who by the time he was a young man he was already considered to be one of the most radical urban photographers. He is especially well-known in Japan for his particular view of the chaos existing in the country’s great metropoles and his photographs that range from the coldest to the most human emotions within the hustle, bustle and noise of cities. The Hasselblad Foundation (Sweden) awarded him its prize – considered the Nobel Prize for Photography – in 2019 and, for this reason, they produced the exhibition that this month reaches the Fundació Foto Colectania, titled ‘DAIDO MORIYAMA. A Diary’. ‘A Diary’ is curated by Sara Walker and Louise Wolthers and it arrives in Barcelona thanks to the collaboration of the Banco Sabadell Foundation.
The retrospective opens on 12 March at 8.00 pm and it will provide you with the opportunity to see the wide scope of Moriyama’s work. Almost 50 years creating photographs that are impossible to classify by subjects or place in chronological order. The artist shows a new way to recreate the chaos that he sees and lives in his country, using mainly black and white photographs, which feature an abundance of chiaroscuro and a definite marked contrast.
The exhibition will be open until 21 June and it can be visited on Tuesday – Saturday, from 11.00 am to 8.00 pm, and Sundays from 11.00 am to 3.00 pm. The general ticket costs €4.00, except on the first Sunday of each month, when entry is free. You will find further information on the Foto Colectania website.
