Artists have a long history of appropriating technological advancements to expand their own means of expression. Photography has particularly close ties to technology and has undergone drastic changes with each new innovation. The daguerreotype was invented in 1839. Nearly 100 years later in the 1940s came the development of color film which, due to limitations in stability and expressivity, didn’t see wide use in art until the 1970s. With the advent of digital cameras and top-of-the-line inkjet printers putting all of those early concerns to rest, many artists have added digital photography to their repertoire.

 

What happens when a photographer who sees the world in grayscale begins using color? Will it bolster their creativity and expand their horizons or simply bewilder them as they watch their images develop ‘in living color?’

Yasuhiro Ishimoto’s monochrome magnum opus Katsura Rikyū (Katsura Villa) was created between 1953 and 1954. In 1983, he released the follow-up Katsura Rikyū: Kūkan to Katachi (Katsura Villa: Space and Form) [Iwanami Shoten] consisting of color photos taken in 1981. This exhibition features these color photographs along with exquisite abstractions made by Harry Callahan during the 1940s, NASA’s images of outer space and many other incredible expressions of color.
