Between 1979 and 1982 Moriyama stopped photographing. With 'Light and Shadow' he re-entered the fray even more hard-boiled than before. The moody grain has been replaced by simple highly contrasted photographs of everyday scenes producing a strangely unsettling effect. Whether it is boots, a pair of jeans, high heels, a cow behind barbed wire, a fish-tank, the sky with clouds, or grass... the same menacing effect... If anybody ever needed proof that photography is not objective, here it is. It clearly doesn't want to be. Terms like 'inertia', 'urban chaos' 'estrangement', or 'nihilism' come to mind. Moriyama was clearly influenced by Andy Warhol, William Klein, and Tomatsu Shomei. Printed in a small edition the work has become very rare. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
