Take A Seat And Look

Shuji Yamada

Shuji Yamada began his career as a photographer in the 60s at the time of his 20 years, specializing in the photo for architectural magazine when Japan began its economic boom of the postwar period. He photographed the integration of buildings in the landscape of cities and depressing uniformity. In the early forties, he decided to drop everything to be closer to land values. In early 1980 he left the city for the island of Awajishima in Hyogo Prefecture to manufacture tiles, called Kawara, a fascination he has since his childhood. We feel this fascination in the photos he takes of roofs and factories in the 1960s and 1970s, before his abrupt change of life. It also includes period photographs of empty years 1980-90, certainly immersed in this new career beginner.
