  • Catalogue Essay

    “I’m trying to recreate the imaginative visions of the architecture before the architect built the building, so I can trace back the original vision from the finished product. All the details and all the mistakes disappear; there’s a lot of shadows, melting. If the building is successfully done, then it will remain strong even out of focus.” Hiroshi Sugimoto

  • Artist Biography

    Hiroshi Sugimoto

    Japanese • 1948

    Hiroshi Sugimoto's work examines the concepts of time, space and the metaphysics of human existence through breathtakingly perfect images of theaters, mathematical forms, wax figures and seascapes. His 8 x 10 inch, large-format camera and long exposures give an almost eerie serenity to his images, treating the photograph as an ethereal time capsule and challenging its associations of the 'instant.' 

    In his famed Seascapes, Sugimoto sublimely captures the nature of water and air, sharpening and blurring the elements together into a seamless, formless entity.  This reflection of the human condition and its relationship with time follows through his exploration of historical topics and timeless beauty as he uniquely replicates the world around us.
