Daido Moriyama at Galerie Priska Pasquer, Cologne, until Jan. 28, 2005
Daido Moriyama born in 1938 in Osaka is one of the most important Japanese photographers since 1945. His work plays a central role in establishing Japanese photography as one of the most creative directions in the history of photography. During the “Provoke Era” at the end of the 1960s/beginning of the 1970s Moriyama made a significant contribution to the development of photography and his influence on younger Japanese artists continues up until today.
Besides his black and white photographs, Galerie Priska Pasquer is glad to be able to exhibit for the first time ever a group of colour photographs by Daido Moriyama.
