Photographer and architect Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japanese, b. 1948) explores the ideas of reality, history, and time throughout his work. Using an early twentieth-century box camera, his photographs capture seascapes, theaters, lightening fields, and architecture in black and white technical compositions verging on the abstract. He was awarded the Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography in 2001, made an Officer of the Order des Arts et des Lettres in 2013, presented the Royal Photographic Society’s Centenary Medal in 2017, and named a Person of Cultural Merit in Japan that same year. With past shows at the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Guggenheim, and Pace Gallery, Sugimoto’s work is held in numerous public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, and the Tate.
