Hiroshi Sugimoto's Theaters, first edition

Price realised:  n. a.
Lot number 113, Views: 75

Theater of Illusion essay by Dr. Hans Belting. Illustrated with plates form photographs by Hiroshi Sugimoto. Boards lettered on spine in silver, silver paper-covered slipcase. First Edition. Hiroshi Sugimoto (杉本博司, born 1948) is a Japanese photographer and architect. "Movie theaters are built as theaters of illusion. But in Sugimoto's equally disturbing and beautiful photographs, such interiors are reintroduced as metaphors. They remind us of our own vision that is confined in a permanent theater of illusion. Our attention is drawn to a screen that represents the archetypal image we welcome as the epiphanic window of the world. The window is bathed in a blinding light that seems to enter the dark room from the outside though, in fact, it is projected from within." - Hans Belting.
