Daido Moriyama (1938) is a Japanese photographer from Ikeda, Osaka, he now works and lives in Tokyo. His photographs tend to be high-contrast, grainy, black and white photographs that show the darker sides of urban life and the lesser-seen parts of the city, especially the Shinjuku area of Tokyo that he photographed from odd angles. He attempts to show life in certain urban areas that in his view were left behind the other industrialized parts.
