Daido Moriyama at Tate Modern (Tate Modernにて。Instagramで撮影)
Irony detector not included
Where: Tate Modern, London.
When: 10 October.
What: an exhibition featuring work by William Klein and Daido Moriyama.
If we haven’t convinced you yet, there’s not much else we can do (except perhaps sigh and feel sorry for you – what are you doing with your life?).
Two of the most distinguished and recognisable perspectives of modern photography, Klein’s and Moriyama’s pictures have contributed in establishing the mythology of New York and Tokio.
The Tate exhibition will showcase “the visual affinity between their urgent, blurred and grainy style of photography and also their shared desire to convey street life and political protest, from anti-war demonstrations and gay pride marches to the effects of globalisation and urban deprivation”, therefore making for an inspiring compare-and-contrast game.
The show will also take into consideration interesting corollaries, such as “the central role of the photo-book in avant-garde photography and the pioneering use of graphic design within these publications” – and if this particular subject catches your interest, you might want to check out as well Tate’s The Photobook and Photography Now.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever – and beauty, in this particular case, costs only 12.70£.
The exhibition will run from this Wednesday, 10 October, to 20 January 2013; find more info at tate.org.uk.
