Shoji UEDA
Photographer. Born 1913 in Tottori, Japan. Ueda got deeply into photography at the age of 15. In 1932 he left his hometown to Tokyo studying at Oriental School of Photography. After finishing the course at the age of 19, he started his own studio in his hometown Tottori. His most well-known and successful works were photos of people photographed as objects posed in dune, which are known as "Ueda-cho" and highly appreciated in the world.

In 1954 he won the Nika Prize, and in 1958 his works were selected by Edward Steichen for an exhibition at MoMA. In 1982 his work was selected to be displayed at Germany's Photokina Exhibition. Shoji Ueda Museum of Photography was founded in Kishimoto-cho (now Houki-cho) in 1995. In 1996 he was awarded a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the government of France. Shoji Ueda died in 2000. His retrospective exhibitions were held in Europe from 2005 to 2008 and receive higher recognition in recent years.
