The latest issue—number 41—of Daido Moriyama’s Record magazine features shots taken on the streets of Tokyo, beginning with an overview of Shibuya station’s Hachiko Square. In-between Moriyama’s photos—of high-rises, dogs, faces, textures of the city—he mixed in small references to his own works (e.g. Lips) and even a sort-of self-portrait, captured in a reflecting wall as he descends an escalator.
"A while ago, someone asked me to name my favorite movie. I didn’t know what to say. There were of course two or three Japanese, and a couple of foreign movies that had impressed themselves on my memory, but judging by the way that question was asked, that person seemed to expect a slightly different kind of answer, so I ended up sinking into thought. What finally came to mind after an eternity and a half of pondering was David Lynch’s “Eraserhead.”
So this was the one film that summed up the entire world of cinema for me.”
