Hiroshi Sugimoto


PhotoUtopia Intro: One of the skills I find most enthralling is the ability to find beauty in simplicity. Sugimoto’s images are breathtaking, yet are of environments we have all encountered, but like any good artist, Sugumoto shows us these spaces with fresh eyes, allowing us to re-discover them for ourselves. Using long exposures and a large format camera, Sugimoto works hard to bring such simplicity to life.

Wikipedia*Hiroshi Sugimoto, (born on February 23, 1948), is a Japanese photographer currently dividing his time between Tokyo, Japan and New York City, USA. His catalog is made up of a number of series, each having a distinct theme and similar attributes.
Sugimoto is also deeply influenced by the writings and works of Marcel Duchamp, as well as the Dadaist and Surrealist movements as a whole. He has also expressed a great deal of interest in late 20th century modern architecture.

His use of an 8×10 large-format camera and extremely long exposures have garnered Sugimoto a reputation as a photographer of the highest technical ability. He is equally acclaimed for the conceptual and philosophical aspects of his work.
