Design is fine. History is mine.

Katsura Imperial Villa, photos by Ishimoto Yasuhiro, 1950s

"I feel that there is a kind of fateful link between Bauhaus and me. I would like to donate fifty-five of my photographs to the Bauhaus Archive Berlin", said Ishimoto Yasuhiro in a letter to the Bauhaus Archive. Many of the photographs that were mainly shot in May 1954 were published 1960 in the book, together with texts by Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and the Japanese architect Kenzo Tange.
