Since the mid-1970s, Hiroshi Sugimoto has used photography to investigate how visual
representation interprets and distills history. This exhibition brings together three series
by the artist—habitat dioramas, wax portraits, and early photographic negatives—that present
objects of historical and cultural significance from various museum collections.
By photographing subjects that reimagine or replicate moments from the distant past, Sugimoto
critiques the medium's presumed capacity to portray history with accuracy.
Hiroshi Sugimoto is represented by aipad member, Fraenkel Gallery.
