One of Japan’s most iconic photographers, Daido Moriyama absolutely loved fishnets. Creating several erotically charged photo series revolving around the black knitted tights. Before his work with fishnets, Moryama grew his portfolio with street photography. Documenting 1960s Tokyo, he captured robust images of post war cultural change and urban chaos in a captivating and expressive style.
The subject matter dominates the whole composition throughout the series, emphasizing the intricate and beautiful patterns fishnets create on the body. The magnified view of entangled legs creates assertive imagery guaranteed to hold the viewer's attention. Erotic undertones and play on exposure and concealment, acts as a fitting metaphor for the suppressed sexuality in Japanese culture at the time.
