The photographer Shoji Ueda, 100th anniversary of his birth Shoji Ueda museum of Photography
Video and Live music event “Happy Together” by Water and Light Project. In the summer of 2013, the Water and Light Project, Asami Yoshiga and former and present artists of Tottori, created a community event combining the unique local culture with contemporary influences. The event was at the beautiful Ueda Shoji museum located at the base of the majestic Mt Daisen.
The event was influenced by the location of the museum, the beautiful natural surroundings, and the very unique photographic eye of one of Japan’s most famous photographers, Ueda Shoji. Shoji Ueda has influenced the way photographers the world over see the placement of humans in the environment. We used that sensibility in capturing and creating the images projected.
With live regional music and musicians, accompanying by gigantic slow moving video images influenced by magnificent photographs of Shoji Ueda and with photographs by Takashi Karaki, we brought alive the large outside walls of Shoji Ueda museum
