Hiroshi Sugimoto (Japanese, b. 1948) is a Japanese artist who explores the nature of time, memory, dreams, and photography in an unconventional manner. Sugimoto's works are included in the permanent collections of the National Gallery Victoria, Melbourne; Tate Modern, London; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; The Museum of Modern Art, New York, among others. Sugimoto currently lives and works between New York, NY and Tokyo, Japan.
Intrigued by architecture, Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto has captured numerous notable buildings and structures as part of his career-long investigation of time and space. To craft his exquisite black-and-white images, Sugimoto uses a 19th-century-style, large-format camera, exploring his idea of photography as a method for preserving and modeling time. “Endeavours in art are…mere approximations, efforts to render visible unseen realms,” he says. His work is heavily influenced by the Surrealist and Dada movements.
