As the Tate Modern’s William Klein + Daido Moriyama exhibition comes to a close, fair warning to those who have not yet caught the show: You have until January 21st to see it!

In conjunction with the opening of the exhibition, Artsy Films collaborated with Tate Media on two films exploring each image maker’s practice. Klein and Moriyama share an intimacy with city life; and between now and Monday, their work will remain side by side, allowing their grainy photographs to speak to one another.

“I think that the most important thing that photography can do is to relate both the photographer and the viewer’s memories,” says Moriyama, who, like Klein, documents personal experience entwined with happenstance. As Klein mentioned in his own interview, “I find if I look back, half of everything I’ve done is chance.”
