Untitled, from the series Memory of Dog

Moriyama Daidō (Japanese, born 1938)
Daido Moriyama often calls himself a "stray dog," a reference to one of his iconic early pictures of a roaming mongrel, but also to his preferred incidental vantage points in relation to his subjects and his beguiled yet wary stance toward modernizing Japanese society. In the series Memory of Dog, he revisited photographic scenarios and motifs from his previous two decades of work, overlaying his peripheral approach with another quality that he finds crucial to photography: its relationship to memory.
