Hiroshi Sugimoto: Theatres
Wednesday October 12: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
The allure of the cinema, the place where people gather to get away from the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives, to escape into another world. It’s an almost mystical location made more captivating with detailed architecture. A perfect place to capture in a photograph as Hiroshi Sugimoto has done in his series Theatres. For this project, he opens the camera shutter and exposes a roll of film for the duration of the movie, letting the screen be the only source of light. The result is something beautiful.
Hiroshi will be joined in conversation with Darius Himes, International Head of Photographs for Christie’s and co-author of Publish Your Photography Book.
The conversation will be followed by a signing of Sugimoto’s book Theatres. In addition to Theatres, Sugimoto will sign one back list title per customer (Damiani-published Dioramas or Seascapes only).
Buy a copy of Theatres, or a $20 gift card to attend. Please note that payment is required for all online orders at the time of checkout. The event will be located in the Strand's 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.
