Shoji Ueda

Catalogue for the 1993 exhibition at the Tokyo Station Gallery, Tokyo

Shoji Ueda is widely known for combining surrealist compositional elements with realistic depictions in his typically black and white images. The sand dunes of his native region of Tottori often provided a backdrop for his single and group portraits.
Early in his career, in the 1930s, Ueda had already absorbed many of the modernist tendencies then prevalent in photography in the West. This catalogue contains four sections–modernism, realism, attitude, and vision–with over 200 beautiful reproductions that touch on a dizzying range of photographic styles, from pictorialism to documentary to abstract/surreal, stylized fashion work. An incredible book of one of Japanese most visionary photographers.

* Condition: Very Good/Fine – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.

Iwata Nakayama
1895 -1945

Iwata Nakayama (1895–1949) was a pioneer of Japanese avant-garde photography. For a period he set up his own studio in New York before moving to Paris where he came to know Man Ray and László Moholy-Nagy. He returned to Japan in 1927 and began to work as a professional photographer in Kobe. He founded Ashiya Camera Club in 1930 with Hanaya Kanbei and other photographers in the Kobe area. In 1932, he, Yasuzō Nojima and Nobuo Ina published their monthly magazine Kōga (光画). This magazine was a critical turning point of Japanese artistic photography. From 1930 to 1942 the members of the ACC were some of the most influential modernist photographers in Japan practicing radical design concepts they labeled “Shinko Shashin” or new photography movement.

Man Ray
Photographs 1925-1955

“The publication of this volume coincides with the 25th anniversary of the death of Man Ray (Philadelphia 1890 – Paris 1976), one of the most interesting and eclectic avant-garde artists who made a name for himself as one of the leading figures of American dadaism. He chose photography as his principal means of expression, utilizing it as an instrument capable of disconcerting the gaze in simple ways. The portraits and fashion photographs collected in this book demonstrate Man Ray’s originality in revealing images of the body, and his constant search for beautiful forms that were also the intelligent expression of art’s capacity to stimulate thought. Never frivolous or banal, Man Ray’s photographs, like his objects, provoke delight, disturbance, disorientation, and most of all, reflection. As André Breton, Man Ray’s companion in the surrealist adventure, declared, “The portrait of a beloved should not only be an image to smile at, but an oracle to interrogate.””
