Ends in 23 days

Globally influential photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto is renowned for his strict sense of composition and form backed by the principles of modern design. Ahead of the year 2021, which marks the 100th anniversary of Ishimoto’s birth, this exhibition looks back on Ishimoto’s approximately 60-year trajectory as a photographer. Ishimoto’s works were extremely diverse, ranging from his representative work “Katsura Imperial Villa,” which identifies modernist elements in classic Japanese architecture, to his “Chicago” and “Tokyo” series, which questions the relationship between humans and the city. Other projects include architectural photographs and portrait works that show his interactions with architects, designers, and editors, his later-year work Toki (Moment), and a series of multiple exposure color photographs that traveled together with him for over half a century.

Ishimoto pursued the art of photography with the unwavering determination of a photographer who could apply keen insight into his subjects.
