Ebisu: Shoji Ueda at Tokyo Met. Museum of Photography
The Shoji Ueda exhibition at the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography ends tomorrow, February 5, and realizing this morning that I wouldn’t be able to go there tomorrow at all, I headed over to Ebisu this afternoon. I’m glad I made the time, because it was definitely worth seeing — as is just about every exhibit the Tokyo Met “Syabi” ever puts on.
I also had planned to peruse the Vietnam 1954-1975 exhibition while there, but having gotten a late start (as usual for me recently) and having spent so much time looking at the Ueda photos, I ran out of time to see it before they closed for the day. But thankfully that one will still be running for a couple more weeks (through February 19), so I can still go back and see it.
Note: If you go to the museum, make sure to go in through the main entrance, so you can check out the mural-size photos that line the walkway up to the entrance – currently including one of Ueda’s images (see photo).
