Shozo Ushiroguchi began making black and white photographic prints in the 1960s, when he left Tokyo for Hamburg and then moved to West Berlin; there he apprenticed in a photo studio and attended a technical institute for film and photography. After coming to Toronto in 1972 and over the years, his black and white prints have continued to reflect an interest, as shared by many of the generation of the 1960s, in themes of political protest and social change, and to draw inspiration from European and American documentary photographers such as Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank.

More recently Shozo’s interest has turned also to documenting his adopted city: its natural and human-built structures and their inevitable transformation, where unlikely aggregations of man-made and natural structures abound.
