Yoshiro Ishii

Born in Yokohama and now based in Tokyo, Yoshiro Ishii started shooting video as a film student but later shifted his focus to photography. While his earlier images feature the city’s celebrated architecture, over time he developed a fascination for the people who live there and their unique stories. Tokyo and its residents continue to inspire Yoshiro and drive him to capture their collectively unique spirit, where modern living merges with tradition and order. It’s this perspective that shapes Yoshiro’s work today.

When shooting, Yoshiro uses a Canon 5D3 and Leica M10, as well as his iPhone. Noting that the iPhone can be put in a place where the camera cannot usually go, he likes the range he gets from the different equipment and the different results it produces. He primarily uses Lightroom to edit, dabbling in Photoshop on occasion and where it serves his purpose. Yoshiro’s work is featured in Trope Hong Kong, the third volume in the Trope City Editions series, which celebrates the juxtaposition of colorful chaos and architectural order of this iconic, constantly changing city.

Yoshiro's Prints

“Tokyo is a city with many people. My interest has grown beyond just the city itself to embrace the people who live there. My photography style is street photography, inspired by movies, music, and works from great photographers that I admire.”
