Central to Hiroshi Sugimoto's work is the idea that photography is a time machine, a method of preserving and picturing memory and time. Sugimoto sees with the eye of the sculptor, painter, architect, and philosopher. He creates images that seem to convey his subjects' essence, whether architectural, sculptural, painterly, or of the natural world.
Hiroshi Sugimoto is featured in the Season 3 episode “Memory” of the Art21 series “Art:21 Art in the Twenty-First Century.”
