After a fateful encounter with Eugene Smith, Morinaga retired from Iwanami Productions and worked as Eugene's Hitachi production assistant for about a year.
After Eugene returned to Japan, Morinaga began working as a freelance photographer and moved to New York in 1967 at the age of 30. While working part-time as a ticket seller at a movie theater showing underground films, Morinaga shoots the streets of New York.
After returning to Japan in 1969, Jun Morinaga held a photo exhibition titled "Moment Monument" at the Ginza Nikon Salon for photographs taken during his one-and-a-half-year stay in New York. This year marks the 5th anniversary of Jun Morinaga's death, and 56 years after the filming, we will hold Jun Morinaga's true debut work in his own full-fledged print.
