Ishimoto Yasuhiro Centennial Metropolis Magazine Japan

Ahead of the hundredth anniversary of Ishimoto Yasuhiro’s birth in 2021, The Tokyo Photographic Art Museum is hosting the “Ishimoto Yasuhiro Centennial: The city brought to life”, delving into his photography that questioned the relationship between humans and the built city. The exhibition includes his acclaimed “Chicago” and “Tokyo” series, juxtaposed with his “Katsura Imperial Villa” work, which investigates modernism in Japanese traditional architecture. The Japanese-American photographer studied at the New Bauhaus in Chicago, now known as the Institute of Design, was a major influence on Japanese photography and the teachings of the New Bauhaus school. The exhibition is part of a collaborative series with the The Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery and the Kochi Museum of Art, each exhibition focusing on a different aspect of his life and work.
