Welcome to LABYRINTH
"I had to go through my entire film archive one by one to reconstruct the contact print for this book" Daido Moriyama
Looking back the whole films forced Daido Moriyama to take a jour- ney to his own path as a Photographer. Each single Contact Sheet, reconstructed by himself, contains the essence of Daido's vision from the 1960's till now. Daido Moriyama named this book "LABYRINTH" by himself, reflecting the process of creation.
Browsing through each shot after another shot creates the illusion of a motion and rhythm. We can reach out to the photographer's heatbeat, soul and vision through this process. You will discover the alternative cut among the well known masterpiece and will notice how close you came accross the essence of Daido's instinct to release the "shutter".

DAIDO MORIYAMA / Born 1938 in Osaka. After working as an assistant for photographers Takeji Iwamiya and Eikoh Hosoe, he went independent in 1964. He has been publishing his works in photography magazines among others, and received a New Artist Award from the Japan Photo Critics Association for Japan: A Photo Theater in 1967. Between 1968 and ’70 he was involved in the photo fanzine Provoke, and his style of grainy, high-contrast images that came to be referred to as“are, bure, boke”(grainy, blurry, out-of-focus) made an impact on the realm of photography. Solo shows at New York' s Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain in Paris solidified Moriyama’s worldwide reputation, and in 2012, he became the first Japanese to be awarded in the category of Lifetime Achievement at the 28th Annual Infinity Awards hosted by the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York. The“William Klein + Daido Moriyama” exhibition together with William Klein at London’s Tate Modern in 2012-13 was a showdown of two immensely popular photographers that took the world by storm.
Daido keeps going on enourmous amount of Street Snap under the motto.... "There are no Quality without Quantity"
