Daido (Hiromichi) Moriyama was born on October 10th 1938, in Ikeda-cho (now Ikeda-shi), Osaka. In 1961, Moriyama moved to Tokyo, to join the eminent photographer's group VIVO in March, whose members included Shomei Tomatsu. After the groups disbandment, Eikoh Hosoe took Moriyama on as an assistant which would lead to Moriyama assisting in the production of Hosoe's series Ordeal by Roses a year later. In 1964, Moriyama started his career as a freelance photographer. He frequently shot around the American base in Yokosuka, Atami, Shinjuku, Asakusa, etc.
