Born in Tokio, Japan, in 1948. Hiroshi Sugimoto lives and works in New York, USA and Tokyo, Japan since 1974.
Sugimoto’s practice expands to photography, sculpture, installation, architecture, garden design, writing, calligraphy, culinary arts, and directing / producing performing arts.
Influenced by American Minimalism and conceptual art, he is interested in fundamental phenomena such as space and time, their transience and our memory and has been addressing himself for decades with recurrent themes.
His enigmatic photographs show dioramas in natural history museums, empty movie theatres with glowing white screens, ocean horizons in fog and icons of modern architecture.
