Editorial Reviews

Daido Moriyama: Stray Dog of Tokyo NEW PEOPLE Artist Series Vol.3

Daido Moriyama: Stray Dog of Tokyo is a documentary that follows the life of photographer Daido Moriyama in the present, which has never been revealed before. Even though his charismatic presence has reigned over the world of photography since the late 60's, his true persona had been hidden behind a veil of mystery, since he had refused any major appearances in front of any media in the past. Follow the charismatic photographer Daido Moriyama as he takes his first digital photos and observe his style of quick snapshots without looking in the finder. His stark and contrasting black and white images symbolize his fervent lifestyle.

Daido Moriyama - one of the world's renown photographers who's shaky and off focus photographers were unacceptable in the past but now is considered one of the greatest artistic photographers living today and known for creating anew era of photography for postwar Japan.

His photographs captured everday subjects but with a focus on the dark and gloomy part of Japanese cities that are typically unnoticed and eventually becoming a photographer who took images depicting the breakdown of traditional values in post-war Japan.

Influenced by Shomei Tomatsu, William Klein, Andy Warhol and Eiko Hosoe, Moriyama studied photography under the tutelage of Takeji Iwamiya, another popular Japanese photographer known for his photography capturing architecture, gardens and Japanese crafts.

Not much is known about Daido Moriyama because he is an extremely private man, but in 2000, Moriyama gave director Kenjiro Fujii unprecedented access to create a film about his work and a more personal interview about his life in general and now that film is available in the US courtesy of Viz Pictures "New People Artist Series vol. 003'.

VIDEO:

"Daido Moriyama - Stray Dog of Tokyo - New People Artist Series 003' is presented in color, 4:3. The majority of the shots were captured in Moriyama's studio and footage of the photographer wandering through Japan as he takes his pictures. The documentary was shot with a regular camcorder and thus picture quality displays quite a bit of combing which is visible while watching. But mostly in scenes where there is a lot of motion.

Daido Moriyama is a name I have never heard before in my life before I picked up "Stray Dog of Tokyo." But I had enjoyed the previous two releases in Viz's "New People Artist Series," with Yoshitomo Nara and Yayoi Kusama, and I wanted to continue with the series.

Moriyama, it turns out, is a fascinating individual. Born in 1938 in Ikeda, Osaka (where I lived for four years, which was an unexpected coincidence!), Moriyama is of that cynical generation who were children during war-time Japan, then saw the selfish and empty society that sprang up in the aftermath. Like other artists of his generation (Oshima Nagisa springs to mind with his Cruel Story of Youth), Moriyama started making a record of the shadowy parts of his country hidden by the glaring neon-lights of pop-culture progress and a future that seemed eternally rosy.

A notorious recluse, Moriyama only opened up for this documentary under the condition that it would be done on a single camcorder, with as little possible barrier between subject and screen. I found that fascinating. Too many photographers that I know use their camera as a barricade to hide behind from the world. Shy people, they hold up huge cameras up to hide their own face and are only observers, not participants. Moriyama specifically attempts to avoid this by using small cameras, and from shooting from the hip rather than composing shots.

great start to the film with Daido talking about his life/process and footage of him doing it all too, Some great insight into the man from his colleagues and friends but the last chunk of the film is useless, The film-maker thought it a great idea to let Daido have try a digital camera instead of his old point and shoot and film it for half an hour, the result is the same as watching anyone who has been handed a digital camera for the first time spin around and take photos of absolutely anything and lose interest in the shot before the preview screen even fades.

worth buying for the most part just fast forward the end.
