One of the photographer's single most beautiful images, it perfectly captures Moriyama's aesthetic: To make us keenly aware of the photograph as the product of a mechanical instrument (the camera) and of the person behind the camera (the photographer) as the witness to the constant flow and throbbing intensity of the world. "Taking a photograph does not mean to cut off a piece of time and place and save it as a record, but to remove color, palpability, smell, and sound from a time and place, and transpose the remnants into a distribution of varying densities of equivalent light and shadow. To take a photograph is to fragment the comprehensive sensory data" (Daido Moriyama). Flow, intensity, and fragments that build up to a cumulative and ecstatic visual experience: This is Moriyama's highly influential conception of photography. An absolute "must-have" original print for Daido Moriyama collectors.
