I came across this photographer while reading the ‘InspiredEye’ blog – http://www.theinspiredeye.net (accessed 28.2.15) and he was also recommended by a Japanese friend. This is a link to his website – http://www.moriyamadaido.com/english/#/gallery/ – accessed 28.2.15
His images have extremes of black and whites, with the detail often lost and the images defined through blocks of black and white. The compositions contain well-defined shapes and contrasts to make this style work. I find the extreme contrast adds a surreal atmosphere to the viewing experience.
