Hiroshi Sugimoto

A little more than a decade after his birth in Tokyo in 1948, Hiroshi Sugimoto began studying photography at the Art Center College of Design. It was there he began his career as a distinguished photographer. Producing highly stylized black and white photographs, Sugimoto’s work consists of multiple different series featuring similar subjects, such as movie theaters and seascapes. Sugimoto’s nostalgic style creates emotion in ordinary places that might otherwise be overlooked. Oscillating between abstraction and realism, his photographs often blur the line between reality and imagination. Sugimoto now divides his time between living in New York and Tokyo.
