artnet: Daido Moriyama Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama photographed one of the Hawaiian islands, not as a lush tropical oasis, but rather as a powerful rock jutting from the sea, a removed, isolated space. Shot from a birds-eye perspective and in black and white, this motif and method is typical of Moriyama’s oeuvre.
