Looking forward to seeing this artist lecture by Daido Moriyama next week at University of Hawaii!
Lecture: Wednesday, November 28, 6-7pm @ ART auditorium
Photographer Daido Moriyama is well known for his experimental and gritty images of postwar Japanese urban life. His Nippon gekijō shashinchō book depicts lesser known parts of Tokyo in all of their mystery, with techniques that exploit the grain of the film and offer surprising perspectives. He has over forty photo books and has shown world-wide, including a recent exhibition of his black and white photographs at LACMA (2012), and an upcoming show at the TATE Modern (2013). Moriyama’s visit will be in conjunction with the Art Department’s Framing Paradise: Photography and Tourism show, which includes his Hawaii portfolio. His visit is cosponsored by Center for Japaese Studies, Hawaii Council for the Humanities, SAPFB, SFCA, and Parc Hotel: Hospitality Sponser for the Arts.
