This is Ishimoto's first book. It is divided into three chapters, namely 'Someday somewhere', 'Beach', and 'Little Ones'. All of them draw from his experience of living in Chicago, but the first and the last are mixed with images from Japan. All images are treated on an equal basis, showing no preference for either country. Particularly in the last chapter on children, Ishimoto proclaims the universality of the human/photographic experience. And yet his introduction is quintessentially Japanese: “Someday Somewhere... everything is alive. I want to make a record of things that are living, to add my small voice to the voices they raise, but alas, I have not yet penetrated to the heart of life, and the collection which is presented here is a meagre thing indeed.” (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
