good documentary about Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama.
Daido Moriyama - Near Equal (with English sub)
“The Photographer had been a slave of camera for a long time.Good camera, good lens, Leica etc. these were the master of a photographer. But in a way, Daido Moriyama is a photographer who started to make the camera his own slave. Photography is not about the camera. Of course we need the camera. If you want to write a romantic love letter, we need some tool to write it with. but anything- pencil or ballpoint pen- is fine. It’s like this in photography and he is a pioneer for that.”
