Daido (Hiromichi) Moriyama was born in 1938, in Ikeda-cho, Osaka, Japan. Upon his father's death, he briefly worked as a graphic designer. He began his photographic career studying with Takeji Iwamiya in 1951, subsequently joined VIVO, in Tokyo, 1958, and then apprenticed to Eikoh Hosoe. He also collaborated on PROVOKE magazine. Shomei Tomatsu, William Klein, Andy Warhol, Jack Kerouac, and Yukio Mishima, are among the major influences on his work. Moriyama's images have been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions at home and abroad. Best known in the western world is Daido Moriyama: Stray Dog which travelled from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to multiple venues including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Japan Society in New York, Harvard Art Museum, Massachusetts, and Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland, from 1999 to 2002. His lengthy bibliography includes Farewell Photography, Hunter, Light and Shadow, and Lettre a St. Loup. He received the Mainichi Art Award among others and is the subject of the full-length documentary film, Near Equal Moriyama Daido. He continues to produce his preferred street photography in his characteristic high contrast, grainy style, experiment with color and digital imagery, teach, write and influence younger generations of photographers.
