Japanese Style Photography, the art of Daidō Moriyama


Above is a video from Hotaru’s Lens that details Japanese photography and some of the noticeable differences between photography in Japan compared to the western world. More specifically, the video takes a close examination at Daidō Moriyama, a photographer who specialized in taking abstract street shots of people. The video gives a great description of who Daidō Moriyama was and his style:

Daidō Moriyama (森山大道 born 1938), is an incredibly important Japanese photographer who brought Japanese sensibilities to photography as he has documented the changing world around him for the last five decades. His stunning work is more like a trip through faded memories and so much more than initially meets the eye.
