If you’re into photography then you will probably have heard the name Hiroshi Sugimoto.
He’s a Japanese photographer who spends much of his time between Tokyo and New York. Using an 8×10, large format camera, he specialises in extremely long exposures. This gives his work incredible detail and depth.
You might have seen his Seascape series featuring 3hour long exposures of… seascapes! Or perhaps his Theatres series, where he visited old cinemas and drive-ins, opening the shutter for the duration of the film, letting the light from the film illuminate its surroundings.
But he’s back with a new series!
An exhibition called Still Life. Have a look around the work (displayed at London’s Pace Gallery), and I’ll tell you why later.
I went along with Mum, Bella and PJ (who stalked us with his Leica!)
Vast, intricately detailed landscapes and natural scenes adorn the whitewashed walls.
They’re the sort of photos that draw you in for a closer look. The longer you stare, the more you’ll see.
Just incase you’re more into fashion than modern photography… I have to tell you about this dress!
It’s another of my hard-found, highly prized bargains. You know I love finding things that look more expensive than they are, and this is the best one so far!
C’mon, take a look.
That price is too good to be true, right?
Well, apparently not! Just look at the detailing…
The lining isn’t the best, but for the price I can’t really complain.
