Hiroshi Sugimoto’s black-and-white photographs of theaters, landscapes, and the sea explore the medium’s capacity to model time. His abstract, chromogenic prints of bold color fields blur the boundary between painting and photography. Sugimoto often shoots on a turn-of-the-century large-format box camera, which captures traces of light and movement in rich, hazy compositions that consider temporality and the realms of perception. Sugimoto studied at Saint Paul’s University in Tokyo and the ArtCenter College of Design in Los Angeles. He has exhibited in London, New York, Tokyo, Paris, and Los Angeles, among other cities. His work belongs in the collections of theMetropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., and many more. His prints have sold for seven figures at auction.
