DOG AND MESH TIGHTS, SOURCE
If you were to ask me to define a photograph in a few words, I would say it is a fossil of light and time.
more about moriyama
Initially known for his provocative street photography, Moriyama’s bold, confrontational style of photography had put Japanese photography on an international stage.
The idea of reproduction was a common theme amongst his works. Often, he would experiment with taking a photograph of a photograph over and over again.
