These photographs -- and the 36 short essays or statements that were published alongside them -- have been collected here, and supplemented with additional color slides shot by Ueda with the camera from 1990 until his death in 2000 but never shown until now.
The result is a wonderful, well-edited book of candid snapshots from someone who was known throughout his career for his brilliantly contrived and setup shots. While that sensibility -- or indeed the energy to construct such predetermined scenes -- might has dissipated in Ueda's old age, in fact one can still see such care and thought as Ueda negotiated the everyday.
