Yasuhiro Ishimoto

Japan Born in: 1921

Japanese photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto was born in 1921. His work was chosen by Edward Steichen to appear in the Family of Man exhibition and catalogue at the Museum of Modern Art in 1955, and Steichen also selected his work for a three-person exhibition in 1961. 

From 1973-1993 Ishimoto produced a number of in-camera color abstractions that appeared as covers for a Japanese magazine. Ishimoto's exhibitions, include New Japanese Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in 1974, solo shows in 1960 and 1999 at the Art Institute of Chicago, a retrospective in 1989–1990 at Seibu Museum of Art in Tokyo, and an exhibition at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo, in 1996. 

Ishimoto's later photography addressed the transitory nature of life as shown in photographs of clouds, footprints in melting snow and fallen leaves. Ishimoto died in 2012, at the age of 90.
