Taro Yamasaki, a Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist, has completed many hundreds of assignments for national magazines, newspapers and nonprofit journals, in 48 states here and in numerous countries around the world.


Yamasaki has spent much of his 45+ year career telling the devastating human stories of innocents ravaged by war, disease, natural disasters, and the cruelty of tyrants. In 2023, 109 of these photographs were acquired by the Library of Congress for its permanent collection.


Yamasaki has also photographed architecture throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia (resulting in two folio size books) and has spent 3 semesters teaching documentary photography at the University of Michigan School of Art and Design (now the Penny Stamps School of Art and Design), the last two as the “Distinguished Visiting Artist in Residence.”
