Daido Moriyama: Record 40

Publisher Akio Nagasawa


Idea Code 19223

In this edition, Daido Moriyama publishes his snaps from a trip to Paris the previous year, in connection with the Paris Photo fair. While wandering in the Saint-Michel neighbourhood, Rue Mouffetard, and the area around Moulin Rouge taking pictures, his thoughts gradually drifted to memories of 30 years ago, when he lived in Paris for a brief period. Moriyama reflects on his obsession at the time to open a private gallery, which for a variety of reasons failed to become a reality, so he ended up spending his days roaming the city’s streets instead. Picture this: a 50-year-old Japanese man with a camera, totally bewildered, who speaks no French and only some broken English.
