    About The Work

    A student of Chicago's Institute of Design, Ishimoto demonstrated notable versatility with the medium. His sensibility was dually formed by studies in modernist aesthetics in the US and a strong Japanese cultural identity.

    This print was sent from Japan by Ishimoto to his friend who was the assistant of ICP's Founder/Director and noted photographer, Cornell Capa
