Daido Moriyama "Tsugaru"
This event has ended.
Taka Ishii Gallery is pleased to announce “Tsugaru”, a solo exhibition with Daido Moriyama. The exhibition which will be Moriyama’s 10th show at Taka Ishii Gallery features 55 works taken in 1976 during his visit to the towns within the surrounding areas of the Tsugaru plain.
Moriyama, who continues to speak of his constitution being directed towards the north, began photographing areas of Hokkaido as well as the northeastern regions of Japan in the early 1970s. These photographs were continuously published in photography magazines. His series of works photographed in 1976 within the Goshogawara area (Aomori prefecture) and the small towns which surrounded the Tsugaru plain were presented in the form of a solo exhibition held at the Nikon Salon Tokyo (Shinjuku, Ginza) in May of the same year. Along with his solo show ‘The Tales of Tohno’ (1974), in which Moriyama first exhibited his original prints, ‘Goshogawara’ was a series which became a turning point for the artist, who had until then concentrated on presenting his works in magazine format.
For this exhibition the gallery will present a total of 55 prints (some of which are vintage) of Moriyama’s unreleased photographic works centered upon the region of Goshogawara and the small towns located within the vicinities of the Tsugaru plain, as well as a new work photographed in recent years.
