The photographer, Daido Moriyama created a photo series ‘Tokyo Color’, exhibited at Luhring Augustine Bushwick, 25 Knickerbocker Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11237. I visited ‘Tokyo Color’ Exhibition on the last day of the exhibition. Excerpt from Luhring Augustine Gallery, “Tokyo Color, an exhibition of works by Daido Moriyama, is on view in our Bushwick gallery through Sunday, October 22. The exhibition highlights the artist’s long engagement with color photography, featuring a slideshow of his early explorations with color film, alongside a series of his recent color prints. Tokyo Color also presents a selection of Moriyama’s iconic black and white “tights” portraits, a subject that the artist has continually revisited since his first series in the 1980s.” The colorways of the film photography were under the iridescent lights. Bright colors tones within photo project. Moriyama documented the streets of Tokyo in a sexual mystic and seductive images. I have visited Tokyo, Japan a few years ago and these photographs reminded of that experience, the grim and grit of Tokyo’s street culture and imagery. The gallery lights adds to the visual perception of the photographs.
