The Daido Moriyama Tights and Lips portrait series features suggestive subject matter that is visually translated through the eyes of the famed artist. The photographer captures monochromatic imagery of legs and mouths in an exhibit that exudes a raw air of sensuality.

Showcased at the Tate Modern, this striking series features high contrast silver gelatin prints displaying lipstick-painted lips and closeups of legs in sheer fishnet tights.

Though the Daido Moriyama Tights and Lips exhibit is erotically charged, the fishnet images are often abstracted in a way that disguises their racy subject matter until one pays them a second look.

Inspired by high contrast film noir imagery, this alluring portrait series showcases provocative subject matter in a subtle rather than vulgar way.
