One of The Beautiful Facets of Life: Being a Photojournalist

Author Marie Ueda documents her childhood experiences during the postwar period in Japan. Inviting readers in her book, “Life is a Wonderful Experience: Autobiography of a Photojournalist” also describing the transition to democratic rule.


Marie Ueda, educated during the occupation of the United States Army in Japan, the author starts with her childhood memories describing the postwar era in Japan and how General MacArthur freed an ill-fated Japan and transformed it into a democratic nation. Having resided in Tokyo, she observed the country’s political, social, and economic transformation. However, women’s conventional role did not progress.

During the 1970s, Ueda left Japan, became an expatriate, and studied Western Civilization at three universities abroad - Australia, Spain, and Portugal. This resulted in learning to speak four languages. She started her career as a photojournalist, working for The Guardian newspaper of London. She reported the revolt of Portugal known as the Carnation Revolution (1974-76).

This raises the questions of where did we come from and where are we going. In regards to our coming future, the author informs us to ponder and understand our people, our planet, and our human consciousness, as we join to the new age of alliance of universal galaxy in this century. “Life is a Wonderful Experience,” unpredictable, enlightening, fascinating, and motivating readers across from all walks of life.
