Akio Nagasawa Gallery Aoyama is pleased to announce the opening of Daido Moriyama’s exhibition “Uwajima” from September 4 until November 17, 2018.
Moriyama visited the city of Uwajima in Ehime Prefecture in 2004, guided by artist Shinro Ohtake. Some of the photographs that he enthusiastically took during his walks around the town were eventually published in the first issue of Coyote magazine (Switch Publishing). Together with previously unreleased shots, the pictures of Uwajima were brought back into the spotlight last May, when the photo book Uwajima was published (again by Switch Publishing). Moriyama had another opportunity to travel to Uwajima in 2012, which produced again a large number of photos.
Shown at this exhibition in the form of an installation are original prints of all photos included in the book Uwajima, as well as twenty previously unseen items shot in 2012.
