Daido Moriyama Drops New Photobook 'A Diary'

Accompanying the photographer’s 2019 Hasselblad Award.

Daido Moriyama recently took home this year’s Hasselblad Award, an honor granted to “a photographer recognized for major achievements,” and the award came with a thick photobook packed with images of the Moriyama’s daily photographic excursions. The book is called A Diary and showcases the artist’s knack for capturing evocative depictions of fragmentation, repetition, chance and disorder.

Moriyama’s work began around the time of Japan’s postwar avant-garde movement of the mid-’60s. Since then he’s been the author of over 200 books and has experimented with various art forms that tie into the medium of photography, like screen printing, theoretical essays and performance art, all of which have greatly contributed to the evolution of street photography — his photographs are often described as raw, blurred and chaotic and explore the world of public spaces.

A Diary packs some 250 pages of glossy high-res imagery and was published by Koenig Books. It explores Moriyama’s work as both a photographer and an artist, accompanied by various analyses and personal notes from people like Simon Baker, Mark Holborn, Hervé Chandès, Nick Rhodes and Ishiuchi Miyako, who have all worked with him over the years.

A Diary is currently available at Koenig Books’ website for $50 USD.
