Each Modern 亞紀畫廊很榮幸宣布開幕首展為「森山大道:Radiation」,展出這位八十歲日本攝影大師以新科技呈現的燈箱作品。攝影家因故無法出席開幕,他寫下這段文字,以傳達對燈箱作品的想法與興奮。敬邀各位朋友出席。

除了把我的攝影製成照片在畫廊與美術館展示以外,我也喜歡印製攝影集、T-shirt、手錶、海報等,任其在街中擴散。這次我的攝影成為了燈箱,我非常期待。如果未來作品可融入城市的看板,成為街道的一部分,我將會非常高興。因為攝影做為藝術,具有無限的可能性,而當它還原至社會的循環之時,正是其發揮最強大可能性之時。

Each Modern is pleased to announce an exhibition of new lightbox works by Moriyama Daido as the inaugural exhibition.

” Not only I like my photographs printed for galleries and museums exhibitions, but also on photobooks, T-shirts, watches and posters to spread throughout the streets. I have been looking forward to see my photographs becoming lightboxes. Furthermore I will be very happy if they can blend into the streets as signboards in the future. The reason is that when photography becomes art, the possibilities are infinite. They are most powerful when they return to the circulation in society. “
