SEASCAPES - HIROSHI SUGIMOTO - SEVEN DAYS SEVEN NIGHTS

seascape gelatin silver print

SEVEN DAYS SEVEN NIGHTS is a title of the show in Gagosian Gallery, NY and series of gelatin silver prints by Hiroshi Sugimoto.  Photographs in the show are of the sea and its horizon in locations all over the world. The photographs are taken different in time of the day and with different exposure time. All the photographs have remarkable sense of stillness and eternity. The ocean is still and seems as though it is floating in space and we are floating with it.  Hiroshi returns to the same subject repeatedly to reveal the “subtleties that he finds in the primordial sea, site of the origin and emergence of life as well as of eternal continuity”.
Hiroshi Sugimoto was born in Tokyo. In 1970 he moved to Los Angeles to study photography at the Art Center College of Design. Now he lives and works in New York City and Tokyo.

This is an artist's book by Hiroshi Sugimoto that presents 14 of his seascape pictures in a fold out accordian format. Each set of 7 seascapes is on one side, there are the day seascapes and the night time seascapes. Lushly printed this is like looking at a set of original prints. Beautiful! restaurants london Good Morning SMS
