Theater Series | Hiroshi Sugimoto | Socks Studio
Starting in the late 1970s, Hiroshi Sugimoto took pictures of cinemas interiors and drive-ins with the aim of encapsulate the whole length of a movie in a single shot. He left the camera shutters open throughout the running of a movie and the glowing screen of the cinemas was left as a trace on each take. A somehow uncanny light resonates in the dark cinema halls. At a further glance, this central light ethereally underlines the rich architectural details of the theater interiors. You might want to compare Sugimoto’s work with Michael Wesely’s, a photographer that uses to take photographs featuringi 3 years long exposures: read “The passing of time“, (on Socks).
SCENE & SURFACE IN THE CINEMA: IMPLICATIONS FOR REALISM
hufubleh said: Why is it when you sign books its an autograph but when I do its destruction of property?
That’s a really hard one, and may need a lot of explaining. Let’s start at the beginning: When a person loves another person they give each other a very special kind of hug, and some months later they might well have a baby. This baby will either grow up to a) write books or b) not write books. In the former case, if the baby (now grown up) signs the book she or he has written it is considered a gesture of connection between the author and the reader. In the latter case, if the not-an-author signs a book written by someone else, it is regarded as an act of defacement.
Of course, sometimes things turn upside down. Joe Orton went to prison for defacing library books and THEN became a famous playwright, so the library books he defaced were, it was then realised, rare art and they eventually went onto display in the library that had originally reported him to the police. So these things change.
I hope this clarifies the matter.
