Shoji Ueda Photography

Shoji Ueda (1913–2000) was a Japanese photographer who has had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including at the Sage Paris and at the Maison Européene de la Photographie. Many works by the artist have been sold at auction.

Ueda was born in Hoki-cho, Saihaku County, and took up a camera at 13 years old. Later, while running a local photography museum, he began taking photos of landscapes in the San’in region. Among these photos, one of the most popular is the Sand Dune series. He photographed friends and family against the background of the Tottori Sand Dunes for a poetic visual impression in monochrome. These avant-garde photos were highly praised in France, being called “Ueda Cho” (Ueda style).
