About this artwork

During his four years as a student at the Institute of Design from 1948 to 1952, Yasuhiro Ishimoto developed a sustained connection with Chicago. He crisscrossed the city’s neigh-borhoods in search of subjects, recording everyday scenes and capturing poetic, humane details of urban life. Often accompanying him on these excursions was fellow student Marvin Newman, with whom he collaborated on a film, The Church on Maxwell Street (on view in the adjacent gallery). This photograph is one of a number that Ishimoto took of North Avenue Beach on sweltering summer days.
