The Salt Yard presents Shjoi Ueda – Illusion — Hong Kong — 27 FEB - 29 MAR, 2015
The Salt Yard, B1, 4/F, Jone Mult Industrial Building, 169 Wai Yip Street, Kwun Tong, Kowloon, Hong Kong
The Salt Yard, an independent art space in Hong Kong dedicated to photography, and Zen Foto Gallery in Tokyo will work together to showcase “Illusion”, the last known series of work by the late Japanese master photographer Shjoi Ueda, between 27 FEB and 29 MAR, 2015. The series,’Illusion’ (1987 – 1992), is known as his last series of collections which differs considerably from his signature style. While also functioning as a form of diary of his inner dialogue at the time, this exhibition shows a lesser-known side of an internationally-renowned photographer and reveals his restless passion and experimentation in the photographic medium.
