Daido Moriyama: Record 41

Publisher Akio Nagasawa


Idea Code 19382

In this instalment of ‘Record’, Daido Moriyama writes that, if everything goes as planned, a movie themed around him and the processes of his photographic work will be released later in 2019. He also claims that he has not been inside a movie theatre in almost ten years. It seems strange, since Moriyama has said that he spent a lot of time in cinemas when he was young. When someone once asked him to name his favourite film, he pondered for a while before finally coming up with the answer: David Lynch’s ‘Eraserhead’. The movie’s aesthetic, the darkness that permeates every light and shadow, has evidently made a profound, indelible mark on Moriyama and his practice.
