Moriyama’s work has a very familiar and current aesthetic about it, although he was doing this way before iPhone apps were invented and street photography was something that every kid in the modern world automatically took part in. His work is raw and honest. There is no masking beauty, rather he depicts a side of Japan that is often looked past and not photographed. Much of his work is imperfect on purpose. In many ways, most of us, with or without knowing, are inspired by Moriyama’s style and perception.
