Yasuhiro Ishimoto: Someday, Chicago examines the work of American-born photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto (1921–2012) through the lens of Chicago, where Ishimoto lived for over a decade and where he would continue to return throughout his life.
Japanese-American photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto lived in Chicago for more than a decade and returned to the city throughout his life. It was in Chicago that he first developed his uniquely modernist vision—both at the historic Institute of Design and in the city’s streets. Someday, Chicago traces Ishimoto’s arrival in the city after internment in Colorado, his documentation of Chicago’s diverse neighborhoods, and his extensive influence on a generation of artists in Japan.
This exhibition is free and open to the public. Presented as part of Art Design Chicago.
