Sugimoto's luminous photographs of classic movie theaters and drive-ins In the late 1970s, as Hiroshi Sugimoto was defining his artistic voice, he posed a question to himself: "Suppose you shoot a whole movie in a single frame?" The answer that came to him: "You get a shining screen." For almost four decades, Sugimoto has been photographing the interiors of theaters using a large-format camera and no lighting other than the projection of the running movie. He opens the aperture when a film begins and closes it when it ends. In the resulting images, the screen becomes a luminous white box and the ambient light subtly brings forward the rich architectural details of these spaces. Sugimoto began by photographing the classic movie palaces built in the 1920s and '30s, their ornate architectural elements a testament to the cultural importance of the burgeoning movie industry. He continued the series with drive-in theaters. In the last decade, Sugimoto has photographed historic theaters in Europe as well as disused theaters that show the ravages of time. Taken together, these photographs present an extended meditation on the passage of time, a recurring theme in his artwork. Theaters, the third in a series of books on Sugimoto's art, presents 130 photographs, 21 of which have never before been published. Hiroshi Sugimoto(born 1948) has exhibited extensively in major museums and galleries throughout the world, and his work is held in numerous public collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; National Gallery, London; National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo; Smithsonian, Washington, DC; and Tate, London, among others. Sugimoto divides his time between Tokyo and New York City.

A complete overview of the practice of Hiroshi Sugimoto, considered by many to be one of the most authoritative figures of international contemporary photography. This volume traces the artist's entire career and masterpieces that have marked his research: from dioramas in natural history museums to seascapes and famous theaters photographed with long exposure times. An entire section is also dedicated to architecture, featuring some recent "no-focus" photographs related to the most important cultural buildings in the world, such as MoMA in New York and the Serpentine Gallery in London. The volume also includes some pictures from the series Lightning Fields. A special section is devoted to the Sugimoto monographs published from 1977 to the recent ones, Dioramas and On The Beach, printed in 2014.

This artist's book, in Praise of Shadows from Japanese artist and photographer Sugimoto, explores the image of the candle flame and the shadow it casts. Based on an installation in which the artist created seemingly uniform, but slightly different transparent images of candle flames and then projected them onto a wall with the light of actual, other candle flames -- this book conjures a meditation on that most poetic of symbols. Born in 1948 in Tokyo, Japan, Sugimoto is best known for his remarkable seascapes and landscapes with their infinitely subtle gradations of black and their rigorous attention to geometrical form and composition. Sugimoto lives and works in New York.

Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto is renowned for his elegant photographic series of seascapes, theaters, museum dioramas, and Buddhist statuary. His new series presents life-size, black-and-white portraits of historical figures -- Henry VIII and each of his wives, Voltaire, Benjamin Franklin, Oscar Wilde, and Emperor Hirohito, among others -- photographed in wax museums, isolated against black backgrounds, and dramatically lit so as to create haunting Rembrandtesque images. The series, which also includes a 25-foot, five-panel photograph of a wax effigy of Leonardo's Last Supper, emulates the grand tradition of portraiture and recalls the wax figures' sources in famous paintings by Holbein, David, van Dyck, and Vermeer. This book, published to accompany an exhibition of commissioned work for the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin that also travels to the Guggenheim Museo Bilbao, includes texts by a team of art historians and an interview with Sugimoto, offering fresh insights into the work of this contemporary artist.
