Portraits

  There is a timeless quality to Yasuomi Hashimura's portraits. The photographs in this series were shot from the late 1960's to present day. Hashimiura has excelled at this challenging form of photography long before digital cameras came along. Some portraits feature art world luminaries such as Leo Castilli and Alex Katz while others were test shots taken with assistants. Whether the subjects were well known or not, Hashimura captures something positive about their energy and spirit. One of the oldest images in the series is the photograph of Bill Ruffin, a former roommate of Hashimura's in Hawaii in 1968. In this photograph the viewer can see an early example of the type of darkroom manipulation later used in the Future Déjà Vu series. The first image of Leo Castilli also shows an early fascination with using this innovative technique.
