Cultural Award to Daido Moriyama

I forgot this in my last post on Daido Moriyama:

Daido Moriyama receives the Culture Award from Dr. Susanne Lange

Daido Moriyma received the Cultural Award of the German Photographic Society (DGPh) in Cologne on November 1. The award is the most important photography award in Germany and is presented every year.

The award: a gold mounted lens

The award winners include internationally renowned scientists, inventors, writers, publishers, editors, lecturers, art directors and, in particular, top photographers from Germany and abroad. Previous photographers who received the price are (to name a few): August Sander, Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, William Klein, Peter Keetman, David Hockney and Wim Wenders.
I had the pleasure to deliver the Keynote address on the artist. :-)
