William Klein + Daido Moriyama @ Tate Modern

MAN, the Brits are lucking out with this one.  This is sure to be a fantastic show.  "This is the first exhibition to look at the relationship between the work of influential photographer and filmmaker Klein, and that of Moriyama, the most celebrated photographer to emerge from the Japanese Provoke movement of the 1960s."  This work is particularly relevant to a consideration of the importance and impact of the photobook, as it "considers the medium and dissemination of photography itself, exploring the central role of the photo-book in avant-garde photography and the pioneering use of graphic design within these publications."  Click HERE to find out more about the exhibition.
