The third in a four-part series titled “Woman in the Night”, in “Naomi” Daido Moriyama presents a photographic reminiscence of a woman he used to know in Nagoya. Visually strong as ever, Moriyama weaves visual fragments into a sexual, sensual, sentimental portrait (or “profile”, as Moriyama writes in the afterword). A photography master at the height of his talent.
“There was a woman called Naomi in the Nishiki area in Nagoya.
She was a person who loved cars. I often took her for a drive.
It’s already three years since she disappeared from Nishiki.
Even now, I still think of her sometimes.
This is a profile of her as she appears in my memory.”
— Daido Moriyama’s afterword (included in Japanese & in English translation)
