Japanese Street photographer Daido Moriyama is one of my personal heroes. I love his gritty, contrasty black-and-white photobooks of cluttered street scenes in Japan, stray dogs, bits of trash, and photographic mistakes that he also recognizes for their beauty, as well.
In this cool 10 minute video he talks about some of his working methods, his desire to take "nasty" pictures, and his claim that photography "is a medium and a habit that is ... quite seductive."
