From the Archive: Experiencing the '60s in Japan with Daido Moriyama

This panel discussion was originally presented on May 13, 1999, in conjunction with Daido Moriyama: Stray Dog, an exhibition of Moriyama’s photographs of postwar Japan. After an introduction to the artist’s work by curator Sandra S. Phillips, scholar Miryam Sas contextualizes his pictures with a presentation on the changed social and cultural landscape of 1960s Japan. Next up, photographer and writer Leo Rubinfien, whose work has investigated Asian modernism and contemporary Japan, explores Moriyama’s expressive photography in depth and considers its relationship to traditional Japanese aesthetics. The panel concludes with a question-and-answer session between Moriyama, the panelists, and the audience.
