Hiroshi Sugimoto: Seascapes

Text by Munesuke Mita.

Featured image is reproduced from <i>Hiroshi Sugimoto: Seascapes</i>.

Damiani's impeccably printed, complete edition of the Hiroshi Sugimoto's elegant Seascapes

For more than 30 years, Hiroshi Sugimoto has traveled the world photographing its seas, producing an extended meditation on the passage of time and the natural history of the earth reduced to its most basic, primordial substances: water and air. Always capturing the sea at a moment of absolute tranquility, Sugimoto has composed all the photographs identically, with the horizon line precisely bifurcating each image. The repetition of this strict format reveals the uniqueness of each meeting of sea and sky, with the horizon never appearing exactly the same way twice. The photographs are romantic yet absolutely rigorous, apparently universal but exceedingly specific.
The second in a series of luxurious, beautifully produced volumes each focused on specific bodies of Sugimoto's work, Seascapes presents the complete series of more than 200 Seascapes for the first time in one publication. Some of the photographs included have never before been reproduced.
Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948) was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, where he studied politics and sociology at Rikkyo University, later retraining as an artist at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. He has been active as a photographer since the 1970s. Some of his major photographic series include the Dioramas, Theaters, Portraits, Architecture and Lightning Fields. He currently lives in New York and Tokyo.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Bookforum

Albert Mobilio

...in these unadorned seascapes, there are microworlds of energy evident only on closer inspection...As Edward Weston did with his abstract images of the American West, Sugimoto offers landscape photography that invites a fresh understanding of the genre.

Hiroshi Sugimoto: Seascapes

Hiroshi Sugimoto: Seascapes, Lake Superior, Eagle River

In Hiroshi Sugimoto: Seascapes, Damiani's gorgeous new monograph launching Dec 1 at the Strand, Munesuke Mita writes, "It is clear that Sugimoto's Seascapes possess a vitality that stands in contrast to Rothko's last paintings, which took the reductionist passion of modernism—the desire to erase everything—to its extreme. In composition and tonality, the Seascapes look strikingly similar to Rothko's final works, at first glance. What, then, is the difference between them? The difference between Seascapes and Rothko's Untitled (Black on Gray is… the seascape. It is the sky and the sea and their clear division. It is the air and the water with all their exuberant life. It is the minute variations in the shapes of the waves, the light, and the shadow. It is the way that Sugimoto once again affirms leela—the playfulness of the cosmos. It is a fertile tranquility of eternally recurring time." Featured image is Lake Superior, Eagle River, 2003. See more Top Holiday Gift Books of 2015. >> continue to blog
