Daido Moriyama: Memoirs of Light

Daido Moriyama, Hippie Crime 1970

"Photographs are the footprints of light and memory, photographs are the history of memory. The myth of the light." Daido Moriyama "Memories of Light" traces the journey of a wandering photographer who, after half a century on the road, had only guides for his memory and memories. Born in 1938 in Osaka, Daido Moriyama has experienced war, the defeat of Japan, the U.S. military occupation, the rise and decline of the "economic miracle." The Polka Gallery in Paris presents "Memory of Light" an exhibition of Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama.
