‘Moriyamando’ is a new series of photographs that I have been working on for the past few days. The name of the series is a pun that I make (and that only makes sense in the Portuguese language) with the name of the great Japanese photographer, Daido Moriyama, whom I admire and draw inspiration from in my street photography.
The name of the series could also be ‘Moriyamanas’, as for example and similarly to the ‘Bachianas Brasileiras’ by the great Brazilian composer Villa-Lobos.
‘Brazilian Bachianas’ is a series of nine compositions by Heitor Villa-Lobos written in 1922. In this set, written for different formations, Villa-Lobos merged Brazilian folk material with pre-classical forms in the style of Bach, intending to build a Brazilian version of the Brandenburg concerts (Wikipedia).
