Photographer and multi-disciplinary contemporary artist, Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japanese, b. 1948) is known for blurring the lines between photography, painting, installation and architecture. To craft his exquisite black-and-white images, Sugimoto uses a 19th-century-style, large-format camera. To Sugimoto, photography is a method for preserving and modelling time. Influenced by Surrealism and Dada, he has often explored the illusory properties of photography which find perfect expression in the series of Seascapes (1980– ). Using long exposures to create eerie scenes with unnatural lighting, Sugimoto transforms the seascapes into images near to total abstractions, which are then coupled with specific geographic titles.
