In his Theaters photographs, an ongoing series the artist began over 40 years ago, Hiroshi Sugimoto attempts to reveal time in photography. A film has been projected onto the screen, and the exposure time of the photograph is the length of the entire film. His exquisite black and white images are crafted with a turn-of-the-century box camera. Hiroshi Sugimoto has had solo exhibitions at the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Osaka (1989), Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (1994), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2000), Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin and Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (2000), Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago (2003), Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. (2006), and Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin (2008), among others. Also an accomplished architect, Sugimoto lives and works in New York and Tokyo.
