Hiroshi Sugimoto: Seascapes
By Elisa Routa
Each black and white photograph is of the same size and cut directly through the center by the horizon line. «Every time I see the sea, I feel a calming sense of security, as if visiting my ancestral home; I embark on a voyage of seeing. » says Sugimoto who describes his vision of sky and water as a form of time travel. According to the publisher, «Sugimoto has called photography the ‘fossilization of time,’ and the Seascapes photographs simultaneously capture a discrete moment in time but also evoke a feeling of timelessness.»
Celebrating the second volume in a series of books on Sugimoto’s art, « Seascapes » presents the complete series of over 200 Seascapes including a large number of exclusive contemporary photographs.
