    The Photographs of Ishimoto Yasuhiro
    Ishimoto Yasuhiro studied with Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan at the Institute of Design. In 1953, Ishimoto began photographing the Katsura Imperial Villa, which was built in Kyoto in the seventeenth century for the Japanese Imperial Family. Its buildings and gardens are created in a simple yet elegant style that has had an effect on many modern architects such as Bruno Taut. The 50 images in the exhibition, which is curated by Susan Aurinko, are from the book Katsura, published in 1960 by Ishimoto.
