Tights in Shimotakaido by Daido Moriyama
Signed copies only
The Tights – with their stark, abstracted lines – stand apart from his grainy, chiaroscuro street photography.
Yet the sentiment behind the pictures is the same: a desire to observe and preserve the everyday details that are so often overlooked. He sees things we don’t see.
So much so that with many of the Tights pictures it is not immediately clear what one is looking at – until you notice the soft curve of the thigh, the slender ankle or the inconspicuous line of the white knickers. The images are erotic and dramatic in their subtlety.
