Daido Moriyama – Record 25
When reading William Faulkner’s ‘A Light in August’ for the first time, Daido Moriyama was struck by the phenomenon of being enveloped and dazzled by an exquisite, spiritual kind of light that wraps a fictional place. It remains one of his favourite books. Moriyama visited Okinawa for the first time in 1974, and for some reason kept sensing that very same dazzling light – a physiological sensation which has since engraved itself on his memory and returns each time he visits the islands. In this issue, Moriyama presents his vision of Okinawa’s extraordinary light from his visit in 2013.
