Hiroshi Sugimoto
by Sugimoto Hiroshi
Publisher's Description
Born in Tokyo in 1948, Sugimoto left his native Japan in 1970 to study in Los Angeles at a time when Minimalism and Conceptualism were the predominant movements in the art world. These movements helped to define his unique approach to photography characterized by its rigorous sense of seriality, its probing analysis of empirical reality, and its pretensions toward the metaphysical. Hiroshi Sugimoto develops his works in series; a carefully considered concept serves as the point of departure for the creation of a body of work devoted to a specific theme.

The exhibition catalogue was conceived by Hiroshi Sugimoto. It includes the complete 'Conceptual Forms' series (44 photographs) and installation views by the artist.
