Yasuhiro Ishimoto was born in San Francisco, moved to Japan with his parents a few years later, then returned to the states in 1939 to study architecture at Northwestern. After internment at Camp Amache, he returned to Chicago and joined the Photography Department at the Chicago Institute of Design. Between 1958 and 1961, he shot a number of haunting street and beach scenes.
