Daido Moriyama’s body of work leans so heavily towards black and white photography that to see a gallery filled with his images of Shinjuku in extreme colour is nothing short of startling. The images fill the windowed hall of the Fondation Cartier in Paris, where they have been arranged in small groups like hyper-saturated visual haikus. How...

There's a French phrase that has no elegant equivalent in English: "reculer pour mieux sauter," or, to step back to better leap forward. Figuratively, it nicely captures the experience of withdrawing from a challenge to gather oneself for a bigger effort. It's an idea viewers might usefully bear in mind in approaching "For a New...
