As an event of the Japan-Brazil Year of Exchange, which marks the centennial of Japanese immigration to Brazil, Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo (MOT) is employing photography as a medium of exchange between Brazil and Japan. MOT will hold an exhibition of works by Daido Moriyama and Miguel Rio Branco, a Brazil-based photographer affiliated with Magnum Photos. Daido Moriyama and Miguel Rio Branco share a passion for photographing the city and people who live there, while each having his own distinctive worldview. For this exhibition, Daido Moriyama has photographed São Paulo, and Miguel Rio Branco has photographed Tokyo. At the exhibition, their differing perspectives and cultural backgrounds will intersect and reveal aspects of Japan and Brazil heretofore unknown. Seeing how they transform the small, easily overlooked moments of everyday life into scenes of deep significance, we too will be drawn into an investigation of reality in contemporary life.
