Katsura: Picturing Modernism in Japanese Architecture
- September 12, 2010
1001 Bissonnet Street, Houston, TX 77005
The MFAH presents one of Japanese photographer Ishimoto Yasuhiro´s most celebrated bodies of work in the exhibition Katsura: Picturing Modernism in Japanese Architecture. His images of the legendary 17th-century Katsura Imperial Villa in Kyoto led him to be considered one of the most influential figures in post-World War II Japanese photography. Seventy of these photographs are shown and for the first time uncropped and as Yasuhiro had originally intended them to be seen.
