Shoji Ueda

Spread across the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre in Beijing’s Caochangdi art district, the first exhibition in China of the Japanese photographer Shoji Ueda (1913–2000) was an understated showcase of the joy that the artist found in his photography. For Ueda’s retrospective, Three Shadows—founded by well-known photographers Rong Rong and Inri—collaborated with the recently opened Shoji Ueda Museum of Photography in the artist’s hometown of Tottori, borrowing 141 original photographs selected by curator Masako Sato.
