more than a decade after staging a major retrospective of his work, fondation cartier in paris is hosting an exhibition of recent works by legendary japanese photographer daido moriyama. hailing from a country where everything seems meticulously managed and runs like clockwork, moriyama is known to zoom in on its often overlooked oddness and imperfections, revealing to viewers the raw beauty of japan. on display is a large selection of colour photographs which shed light on this lesser-known yet ubiquitous aspect of his photographic practice over the last two decades. additionally, fondation cartier has also commissioned a new work in conjunction with this not-to-be missed  showcase. entitled dog and mesh tights, it's an immersive multiscreen projection of black and white photographs that’ll plunge viewers into the commotion of the contemporary city, capturing fragments of daily life from its frantic hustle and bustle [on through jun 5]. location: 261 boulevard raspail [montparnasse]..
