The artist Hiroshi Sugimoto

  • Japanese conceptual photographer who exclusively takes black-and-white photographs.
  • His works appear in series; they follow surrealist and dadaist visual aesthetics.
  • Lives and works in New York and Tokyo.

Hiroshi Sugimoto, born 23.02.1948 in Tokyo, is a Japanese conceptual photographer known for his artistic light-and-shadow stagings. Sugimoto exclusively produces black-and-white photographs in thematic series – in his work series he has already turned to the themes of diorama (Dioramas from 1974), wax figures (Wax Museums from 1976), theatre and cinema (Theaters from 1978), seascapes (Seascapes from 1980) and architecture (Architecture from 1997). His intention is to explore human ideas of conservation and memory.

His pictorial aesthetics are oriented towards Surrealism and Dadaism and are achieved through extremely long exposure times. The light, which in this way presents itself unnaturally, conveys a ghostly atmosphere in keeping with the idea of the visualisation of transience. Sugimoto studied political science and sociology at Saint Paul's University in Tokyo.

After graduating in 1970, he moved to Los Angeles. There he studied photography at the Art Center College of Design. During this time, he was already influenced by US Minimalism and Conceptual Art. In 1974, he moved to New York, where he still lives and works, alternating with Tokyo. Sugimoto has been honoured with various awards, including the Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography (2001), the German Photography Book Prize (2006/2007) and the Praemium Imperiale (2009).

In 2005 and 2006, his works were shown in a retrospective first at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo and then at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C. and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (Texas). Sugimoto's works are sometimes included in the collection of the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Der Künstler Hiroshi Sugimoto

  • Japanischer Konzeptfotograf, der ausschließlich Schwarzweißfotografien fertigt.
  • Fertigt thematische Werkreihen; sie folgen surrealistischer und dadaistischer Bildästhetik.
  • Lebt und arbeitet in New York und Tokio.

Hiroshi Sugimoto, geb. 23.02.1948 in Tokio, ist ein japanischer Konzeptfotograf, der für seine kunstvollen Licht-und-Schatten-Inszenierungen bekannt ist. Sugimoto fertigt ausschließlich Schwarzweißfotografien in thematischen Serien – so wandte er sich in seinen Werkreihen bereits den Themen Diorama (Dioramas ab 1974), Wachsfiguren (Wax Museums ab 1976), Theater und Kino (Theaters ab 1978), Meeresansichten (Seascapes ab 1980) und Architektur (Architecture ab 1997) zu.

Seine Intention ist es, die menschlichen Ideen von Konservierung und Erinnerung zu ergründen. Seine Bildästhetik orientiert sich am Surrealismus und Dadaismus und wird durch extrem lange Belichtungszeiten erzielt. Das sich auf diese Weise unnatürlich darbietende Licht übermittelt passend zur Idee der Vergegenwärtigung von Vergänglichkeit eine gespenstische Atmosphäre. Sugimoto studierte Politikwissenschaft und Soziologie an der Saint Paul’s University in Tokio.

Nach seinem Abschluss 1970 zog er nach Los Angeles. Dort schloss er ein Studium der Fotografie am Art Center College of Design an. Bereits während dieser Zeit ließ er sich vom US-amerikanischen Minimalismus und der Konzeptkunst beeinflussen. 1974 ging er nach New York, wo er noch heute im Wechsel mit Tokio lebt und arbeitet. Sugimoto wurde mit verschiedenen Auszeichnungen geehrt – dazu gehören u. a. der Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography (2001), der Deutsche Fotobuchpreis (2006/2007) sowie der Praemium Imperiale (2009).

2005 und 2006 waren seine Werke im Rahmen einer Retrospektive zuerst im Mori-Kunstmuseum in Tokio und anschließend im Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C. sowie im Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (Texas) zu sehen. Sugimotos Arbeiten sind mitunter in der Sammlung des Guggenheim Museum in New York vertreten.
