Japanese Canadian National Museum presents KATSURA – The Photographs of Ishimoto Yasuhiro , opening June 5, 2010 at the National Nikkei Museum & Heritage Centre, located at 6688 Southoaks Crescent in Burnaby, BC, and continuing until August 7. 

 

Photographer Ishimoto Yasuhiro (b. 1921) is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential figures in the development of postwar Japanese photography. Among his most celebrated bodies of work, his photographs of the legendary 17th century Katsura Imperial Villa in Kyoto infuse images of the iconic structure with a New Bauhaus aesthetic. This exhibition of 50 black and white photographs presents Ishimoto’s attempt to liberate tradition through a contemporary view point.

 

Works: 50 framed Photographs of Gelatin Silver Print from Katsura Villa , Iwanami Shoten (1983)
