This volume is the first in a planned series of publications that will document various photographic series produced by Japanese photographer Sugimoto (b. 1948); future publications will examine Seascapes, Theaters, Architecture and Lightning Fields. Note: the publisher produced an alternate edition of this publication for Pace Gallery in New York to accompany their related exhibition mounted in 2014; although the trade edition offered by Worldwide omits certain exhibition references included in the Pace edition, the two versions are otherwise identical. Publisher's description: "Hiroshi Sugimoto (born 1948) began his four-decade-long series Dioramas in 1974, inspired by a trip to the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Surrounded by the museum's elaborate, naturalistic dioramas, Sugimoto realized that the scenes jumped to life when looked at with one eye closed. Focusing his camera on individual dioramas as though they were entirely surrounding scenes, omitting their frames and educational materials and ensuring that no reflections enter the shot, his subjects appear as if photographed in their natural habitats. He also explores the power of photography to create history -- in his own words, "photography functions as a fossilization of time."
