After spending most of his life in the United States, photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto (1921–2012) settled in Tokyo in 1961 and began a study of the city distinct from the street photography of his contemporaries. For the next fifty years, the shifting spaces and people of Tokyo made up the core of Ishimoto’s work. Tokyo: Yasuhiro Ishimoto features a selection of photographs of Tokyo’s urban landscape, mainly from the 1970s and 1980s.
Tokyo: Yasuhiro Ishimoto is the result of a conversation between Louise Désy (Curator, Photographs) and Cerys Wilson (2011 Power Corporation of Canada Curatorial Intern).
