Yasuhiro Ishimoto (1921 - 2012) bridged east and west in his art and life, taking photographs from the postwar period into the 21st century. He merged western Modernism with a Japanese-inspired attention to fleeting moments and subtle beauty. Ishimoto was born in San Francisco and raised in Japan. After WWII, he entered the Chicago Institute of Design. He spent the rest of his life capturing people and scenes on the streets of Chicago and Tokyo, as well as formal architectural settings, amassing a body of work unified by his strong sense of form, composition, and detail.
