Hiroshi Sugimoto

The Architecture Series

November 10, 2000 - March 04, 2001

Known for his long-exposure photographic series on empty movie theaters, seascapes and museum dioramas, Hiroshi Sugimoto has now turned his eye to landmarks of modern architecture from around the world. The blurred and seemingly timeless photographs record buildings as diverse as the Empire State Building and Tadao Ando's chapel in Osaka in a manner that brings out their solidity, evocative capacity and enigmatic presence.
