Ishimoto Yasuhiro Centennial: Tradition and Modernity
This centennial exhibition celebrates the life and work of dynamic photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto. Born in California in 1921, Ishimoto studied at the Institute of Design (New Bauhaus) in Chicago which would strongly influence his career and lead him to explore his medium from a new perspective. Living in both Japan and America throughout his life, the photographer is best known for his monochrome shots focusing on form and structure, including American street scenes, traditional and contemporary Japanese architecture and nature. The exhibition will include previously unseen early works and magazine works as well as chronicling the extensive output of the acclaimed Japanese-American photographer.
Admission is restricted due to ongoing risk of COVID-19. Visitors are required to make advance timed bookings.
