Daido Moriyama is a Japanese photographer. Memories of a Dog (2004) is a beautiful photography book with his photos and text accompanying them. I dream to be able to read one while drinking my chai tea latte one day. Notice I didn’t even say “to own one”? Just to be able to sit down with one for a few hours. Dreams live on.
This 12-minute short documentary with the filmmaker following Daido Moriyama around town (somewhere in Japan) as he’s photographing is a film to savor and love. Especially if you’re an image & memory creator at heart.
One of the reasons why I’ve been on a break from YouTube is to create and publish my first zine. The subject of the zine is the quiet side of Rehoboth Beach, my favorite “local” beach town (just about a 3-hour car ride away from home). The zine is available now on Blurb and you can also preview a few pages before purchasing. I initially wanted to publish a smaller size zine, but after testing out a few different sizes, the larger 8.5″ x 11″ size showcases the photos so much better. I hope you’ll like it! Being a fan of zines for years, I’m so excited to share my first zine with you!
