Hiroshi Sugimoto: Theaters

50,00

In the late 1970s, as Hiroshi Sugimoto was defining his artistic voice, he posed a question to himself: “Suppose you shoot a whole movie in a single frame?” The answer that came to him: “You get a shining screen.” For almost four decades, Sugimoto has been photographing the interiors of theaters using a large-format camera and no lighting other than the projection of the running movie. He opens the aperture when a film begins and closes it when it ends. In the resulting images, the screen becomes a luminous white box, its ambient light subtly bringing forward the rich architectural details of these spaces.

He began the series by photographing the classic movie palaces built in the 1920s and 30s, their ornate architectural elements a testament to the cultural importance of the burgeoning movie industry. He continued with drive-in theaters. In the last decade, Sugimoto has photographed historic theaters in Europe as well as disused theaters that expose the ravages of time. Taken together, these photographs present an extended meditation on the passage of time, a recurring theme in his artwork.
