Daido Moriyama’s gritty photography, which often showed the darker side of urban life in postwar Japan, has won him many awards, including the International Center of Photography in New York’s Inifinity Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2012.

This exhibition is divided into three sections — “World of Mesh,” “Gaze of the Passerby” and “Light and Shadow,” which includes works from his award-winning 1983 series of the same title. Moriyama’s latest work, street snapshots taken in the Shinjuku and Ikebukuro areas, are also being displayed.
