A DIARY - HASSELBLAD AWARD 2019 (2020, WALTHER KÖNIG)

With its generous image flow, this book celebrates Daido Moriyama as the 2019 Hasselblad Award winner and his highly influential, lifelong radical and authentic approach to photography. "A Diary" points to his continuous, daily photographic expeditions, resulting in an oeuvre charged with fragments, repetitions, chance and chaos. His production of images is enormous, and whereas some photographs have become iconic and reappear in numerous books and exhibitions, it is always possible to encounter more unknown works. In order to exemplify the long term and wide range impact of Daido Moriyama's photography, this publication not only presents an overview and analysis of his work by Sandra Phillips, but it also includes shorter personal notes from people who has encountered and worked with him over the years: Simon Baker, Mark Holborn, Hervé Chandès, Nick Rhodes and Ishiuchi Miyako.

Daido Moriyama (Ikeda, Osaka, 1938) lives and works in Tokyo. He first trained in graphic design before taking up photography under Takeji Iwamiya and Eikoh Hosoe as an assistant. He became an independent photographer in 1964, publishing Nippon Gekijō Shashinchō (Japan Theater Photo Album) in 1968 and Shashin yo Sayounara (Farewell Photography) in 1972; the work showed the darker sides of urban life and the city. He has had a radical impact on the photographic and art world in both Japan and in the West, with his expressive style of ‘are, bure, boke’ (rough, blurred and out-of-focus) and of quick snapshots without looking in the viewfinder.

His solo exhibitions include “William Klein + Daido Moriyama”, Tate Modern, London (2012); “On the Road”, The National Museum of Art, Osaka (2011); “Daido Retrospective 1965-2005 / Daido Hawaii”, The Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography (2008); Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo, Sevilla (2007); Foam, Amsterdam (2006); Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris (2003); Fotomuseum Winterthur (2000); San Francisco MOMA (1999, travelling to The Metropolitan Museum, New York).

He is a recipient of the Lifetime Achievement award at the 28th Annual Infinity Awards from International Center of Photography, New York (2012); The Culture Award from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photographie, Cologne (2004); The Photographic Society of Japan Liftime Achievement Award (2004); the Mainichi Art Award (2003) and the Japan Photo Critics Association Newcomer’s Award (1967).
