Description

Comprising of work produced throughout the span of Ueda’s professional life, from the 1930s through the 1990s, this book features photographs that were originally published in the now-defunct Camera Mainichi magazine between 1974 and 1985.

From the Shoji Ueda Museum of Photography: “Shoji Ueda (1913-2000) is regarded as one of the most outstanding Japanese photographers of his time. Although he only left his native Tottori Prefecture on a few occasions, Ueda discovered the photographic innovations of the Western avant-garde through specialist publications that he received from time to time, and he felt drawn toward technical and aesthetic experimentation. Following a barren period during the Second World War, Ueda returned to his work and produced some of his most representative [imagery], in which the dunes of Tottori became a stage on which he arranged human figures in his own particular way. The charm and ingenuity of these curious images has no parallel in the history of photography. His conception of this art form was closely linked to his sense of humour, to a highly special aesthetic approach, and to his enormous curiosity about the small things of everyday life.

 


 

Composé d’œuvres produites tout au long de la vie professionnelle d’Ueda, des années 1930 aux années 1990, ce livre présente des photographies qui ont été initialement publiées dans le magazine Camera Mainichi, aujourd’hui disparu, entre 1974 et 1985.

Du Shoji Ueda Museum of Photography: “Shoji Ueda (1913-2000) est considéré comme l’un des photographes japonais les plus remarquables de son temps. Bien qu’il n’ait quitté sa préfecture natale de Tottori qu’à quelques reprises, Ueda a découvert les innovations photographiques de l’Avant-garde occidentale à travers des publications spécialisées qu’il recevait de temps en temps, et il se sentait attiré par l’expérimentation technique et esthétique. Après une période stérile pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, Ueda est retourné à son travail et a produit certaines de ses images les plus représentatives, dans lesquelles les dunes de Tottori sont devenues une scène sur laquelle il a disposé des figures humaines à sa manière. Le charme et l’ingéniosité de ces images curieuses n’ont pas de parallèle dans l’histoire de la photographie. Sa conception de cette forme d’art était étroitement liée à son sens de l’humour, à une approche esthétique très particulière, et à sa grande curiosité pour les petites choses de la vie quotidienne.
