Editorial Reviews

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice view September 1, 2013

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Insight to a brilliant photographer June 14, 2013

Its always great to hear straight from the artist themselves. And in this case, even better to get to follow him through his rounds around Shinjuku.
