Yasuhiro Ishimoto: Someday, Chicago

Ishimoto Cover


This book examines the work of US-born photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto (1921–2012) through its connections to Chicago, where he lived for over a decade and returned to repeatedly throughout his life. Long celebrated in Japan as one of the most influential photographers of the twentieth century, Ishimoto also maintained deep ties to his adopted home city of Chicago, where he arrived in 1945 after having been imprisoned in a US internment camp during World War II. It was in Chicago that he developed his uniquely modernist vision.  

This catalog—which accompanies the 2018 exhibition at DePaul Art Museum—features both black-and-white and full-color reproductions of key works by Ishimoto, as well as in-depth essays by exhibition co-curators Jasmine Alinder and John Tain.
