Provoke is the title of the magazine founded in 1968 by a group of Japanese photographers, graphic designers, poets, critics, and political activists. Moriyamas photography is indeed provocative, both for the form it takes (dirty, blurry, overexposed, or scratched) and for its content. The viewers experience of the photowhether it captures a place, a person, a situation, or an atmosphereis the central thrust in his work, which vividly and directly conveys the artists emotions.
Daido Moriyama, born in Osaka, moved to Tokyo in 1960 to join the eminent photographers’ group VIVO. Since then he has collaborated with many prominent Japanese photographers, including Eikoh Hosoe and Noboyushi Araki, and considered one of the most important and influential living photographers in the world. Filippo Maggia teaches History of Contemporary Photography and Design at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Turin. He collaborates with art journals both in Italy and abroad.
