Japanese photographer Daido Moriyama has garnered near-cultic fascination since his images began to infiltrate the American consciousness in the late 1990s. At that time, his work rode to prominence on the wave of discovery surrounding Japanese photography—especially for book enthusiasts, who championed the strangely beautiful amalgam of poetic anti-hero and street snapshot genius in Moriyama's urban wanderings. His photo-essay memoirs of post-war Japan, Memories of a Stray Dog, were finally translated into English by Nazraeli Press in 2004, cementing his seizure of hearts worldwide as its carefully crafted texts met their match in light and shadow. Moriyama's work, passionate, personal, melancholic, bound by an obsession with memory, has since taken over—so much so, that he is now called the father of street photography.

Christophe Guye Galerie is a contemporary art gallery, representing national and international artists who consider the medium of photography within the larger context of current art practices. First and foremost conceptual artists who choose to express their vision through the use of a camera or light sensitive materials, the works of these emerging talents, as well as mid-career and established artists, notably contribute to the historical discourse of art, as well as to the expanding medium of photography and to the evolution of contemporary art at large.
Founded by Christophe Guye in 2006–former SCALO|GUYE Gallery–in Los Angeles, the gallery moved to its current location in Zurich, Switzerland in 2010. With five to seven shows per year, the programme varies between solo and group exhibitions that include works by gallery as well as guest artists and are occasionally organised by invited curators. In addition, the gallery embraces the long-term counselling of collections and the fostering of new collectors, as well as the curating and organising of exhibitions in collaboration with institutions, museums, and partner galleries. The gallery participates in Paris Photo, Photo London, Unseen Amsterdam and Photo Shanghai.
Moreover, the gallery offers limited edition art books from independent publishing houses such as amana and FOIL, Tokyo as well as Mörel Books and Nobody Publishing, London, among others.

MASAHIRO MAKI GALLERY was established in 2003 in Tokyo, Japan, under the name Sakurado Fine Arts, with the aim of promoting the works of Japanese artists who played seminal roles in the avant-garde art scene of the 1950s and 1960s.
While focusing primarily on Japanese masters who shaped post-war and contemporary art, the gallery has gradually developed an ambitious program that introduces contemporary artists from overseas to Japan and brings an international audience to Japanese artists.
The gallery changed its name in early 2019 to reflect this strong desire to engage with domestic and overseas contemporary artists, while continuing to specialize in post-war Japanese art. The program increasingly includes artists of different generations and practices, encouraging dialogue and stimulating discussion around contemporary art.
Located in Omotesando, an area which continues to inspire artists and creatives, the Tokyo gallery holds a variety of solo shows and other curated exhibitions across its two-floor space throughout the year. The gallery opened a second space in the Opéra neighborhood of Paris in 2012.
Reflex is an established gallery representing both upcoming and internationally renowned contemporary artists, including Miles Aldridge, Nobuyoshi Araki, Harland Miller, David LaChapelle, Todd Hido, Daido Moriyama, Iris Schomaker, Keith Coventry, Marcus Harvey and Ichwan Noor.
Organising a minimum of six solo shows and group exhibitions a year, the gallery has a wide international reach and offers tailored guidance to private and corporate art collectors. Reflex also operates in the secondary market and is experienced in sourcing exclusive works of photography, painting and sculpture.
Over the last three decades, Reflex developed a strong publishing tradition, producing high quality limited editions, prints and publications. For the latter, the gallery collaborated with the eclectic likes of Wim van Sinderen, Wim Pijbes, Marilyn Manson, Matthias Harder, Marcel Feil, Erik Kessels, Hari Kunzru & Sir Norman Rosenthal to name a few.
Reflex was founded as a family business in 1986. Its name is inspired by the 1948 manifesto of the Cobra group, and can be seen as a gesture of homage.
Founded in London in 2002, Simon Lee Gallery represents artists of diverse generations whose practices explore a wide range of media, from sculpture and painting to video and photography, and who share a broad interest in an exploration of the conceptual.
Aiming to provide a significant international audience for its artists, the gallery also regularly punctuates its programme with historical exhibitions and curated group shows, which present shifts in contemporary art practice and thought, whilst broadening the dialogue with artists outside of the gallery’s core programme.
In addition to its UK activity, in 2012 the gallery opened a space in Hong Kong, which introduced its artists to a wider public in Asia, with a fully independent programme. In 2014, Simon Lee Gallery opened an office and private viewing space in New York. In 2017, this space was re-launched with a year-round programme of exhibitions and events, showcasing the work of emerging and established artists in dynamic group and solo exhibitions
Taka Ishii Gallery opened in 1994 with an exhibition program devoted to exploring the conceptual foundations and implications of contemporary (photo) graphic practice. The gallery has since exhibited and published the work of contemporary master Japanese and foreign artists as well as supported the development of younger artists.
In the winter of 2011, the gallery inaugurated Taka Ishii Gallery Photography / Film, a second exhibition space located in the Roppongi district of Tokyo. With this new exhibition space, the gallery serves as a forum for the presentation of a focused program considering the work of lesser-known pre and post-war Japanese photographers as well as a site for the exhibition of masterworks by historical and contemporary photographic masters from Japan and abroad.
