Stefano Cecchi | Tights in Shimotakaido, 1987/2014 – Daido Moriyama



Tights in Shimotakaido, 1987/2014 – Daido Moriyama

September 2015


There are works that intrigue us as soon as we lay our eyes on them. This is the case with How to Create a Beautiful Picture 6: Tights in Shimotakaido, 1987/2014 by Daido Moriyama. Although the title tells us we are dealing with tights, I can’t accept it. For me, it’s an abstract image, curved lines and geometric cracks in which to lose oneself searching for the author’s essence. It is one of Moriyama’s most recent works and, at first glance, it seems very different from his first works, so refined and nuanced. Perhaps it is this mystery that fascinates me, probably ‘Tights in Shimotakaido, 1987/2014’ is the dividing between two, equally important, phases of the author’s career. I have been bewitched by this incredible piece! And I am not the only one to be subjected to its fascination. With me is another guy from Turin (he lives in Barcellona, I live in London): his name is Stefano. Guess who I’m talking about? – by Eugenio.
