Yasuhiro Ishimoto - Katsura Imperial Villa, 1953-1954

"The images deviate from the conventional standards of architectural photography, making no attempt to portray representative features. They show an eye for detail, often as abstract compositions in which lines organize the surface structure and textures fill the spaces between them. The palace is segmented by Ishimoto into flat patterns that consist solely of grey tonal values. However, the subject of the photo always remains recognizable. Ishimoto fully exploits the available techniques of black-and-white photography with its dense black tones. His approach seems appropriate to the subject, yet also distant." [Bauhaus Online]
