Juxtaposition of two magnificent sequences: "Hana", Ishimoto's black-and-white flower photographs, and "Meguriau Iro To Katachi", his masterly semi-abstract studies in color. Pursued later in his career, the separate bodies of work show the influence of both the Bauhaus aesthetics that he immersed himself in during his Institute of Design stint as well as the enduring influence of Japanese aesthetics: Rigorous yet vibrant, ethereal yet sensual, cosmopolitan yet natural, all at the same time. Viewed individually and together, "Hana" and "Meguriau Iro To Katachi" represent some of the most beautiful "painterly" photographs one is likely ever to see.
