Ueda Shoji

Week 3- Managed to catch the retrospective of Ueda Shoji 植田正治逝世20年紀念回顧展 Ueda Shoji:Retrospective. I love his passion and determination, when he first took up photography darkroom, it was as though he built everything in his own little way. Didnt care much for the perfection, but sought to find the soul in his art. The deepest emotion I felt were his series right after the war in 1945. His family and the undying support and encouragement from his wife. After her passing, all I could see was his loneliness in his pictures.
