About Artworks:
An edition featuring ten images from Daido Moriyama's seminal title Farewell Photography. The edition, produced to commemorate the presentation of William Klein + Daido Moriyama at London's Tate Modern (October 10, 2012 – January 20, 2013), consists of black and white prints produced The silkscreen prints are produced by Tokyo-based Edition Works, responsible for the acclaimed 2011 Moriyama edition ACCIDENT.
The 2012 Farewell Photography silkscreen prints exist as a genuine extension of Moriyama's original, most extreme project; pixelated virtual images realized in the tactile media of silkscreen on paper suggest that contradictions enlivening Moriyama's 1972 series, distinct within his oeuvre for expressing a near total disregard for photographic convention, remain vital within present-day practice.

Artist bio:
Daido Moriyama
Born in Ikeda City, Osaka Prefecture in 1938. After working as a graphic designer, he became an assistant to photographers Takeji Iwamiya and Eikoh Hosoe, and became independent in 1964. Published the 1968 photobook "Nippon Theater Photobook" and the 1972 photobook "Goodbye Photographs". It shook the photographic world with a radical expression that overturned the existing photographic system, characterized rough particles called "Are Bure Bokeh", an unfocused screen, and a tilted composition with no viewfinder. The evaluation extends to the art world both inside and outside the country, and large-scale exhibitions are held all over the world.
