Shoji Ueda Museum, Mount Daisen

By Burutapen

In the 1990s Ueda’s hometown decided to build a museum by the Mount Daisen where his work could be permanently displayed and Shin Takamatsu was selected, by the photographer, to be the architect who designed it. Located on the edge of the Daisen National Park, the Shoji Ueda Museum of Photography is a wonderful example of both Japanese architecture and photography.

The building, which includes a room size “Camera Obscura”, frames the views of the surrounding landscape from multiple viewpoints and in doing so, makes them part of the work displayed.” (Extracted from the Mimoa Project Page I created: here)
