The gallery Bruce Silverstein presents the exhibition Within the Shadows by Daido Moriyama.
Featuring a selection of work that surveys the artist's career, the exhibition focuses on and reinforces Moriyama's exploration of the quotidian and the search for freedom. Inspired by the writings of Jack Kerouac among many others, Moriyama's own life and artistic practice reflect a nomadic style guided by the desire to experience the multiplicities of the everyday. Wandering, and capturing the unfolding reality along the way, are essential to Moriyama's imagery, and distinguish him as a sophisticated voyeur of city life. The artist's photographic output is one of stylized, high contrast pictures that celebrate the everyday and transform what is seemingly normal into high drama.
