" The book ON DAIDO is a photographic anthology of statements and homages to the Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama made by internationally acclaimed photographers and writers. This publication is dedicated to him and has been produced in a special edition of 500 copies on the occasion of the 7th Fotobookfestival Kassel in June 2015.
Daido Moriyama is undoubtedly one of the most important photographers of all times. But who is this reserved, likeable man from Tokyo, who has affected the development of Japanese photography like no other ? Which overwhelming energy is behind this fascinating simplicity in the art of photography ? How is it possible that his images, no matter how they are cropped, reproduced, rotated or flipped, still manage to keep their core essence ? How does one approach the Daido Moriyama phenomenon ?
We asked 31 photographers and 21 writers to help us find an answer by way of visual and textual statements. We requested appraisal and acclaim, commentary and feedback. Our request predominantly met with a resoundingly positive response and immediate approval. The resulting anthology ON DAIDO paints a multifaceted picture of the great renewer of photography. Essentially, it does not so much pay homage to an individual, as celebrate the photographic medium as a whole.
We are grateful to the photographers and authors for their participation. We wish to carry on spreading and understanding the great work of Daido Moriyama through this anthology. "
