    About the Seascapes Series: Sugimoto began his series of seascapes in 1980, traveling to remote oceans, seas and lakes around the world. Using his late-19th/early-20th century big box camera with black-and-white sheet film, he achieves high technical results with gradations and tonalities that make each photograph distinct and impeccably rich in detail. Perched on high cliffs, Sugimoto is able to look across the water and capture its vastness and mystery in a minimalist composition that relies solely on the water, the atmosphere, and the horizon line that precisely bisects his frame.

    “My first view of the ocean came as an awakening,” Sugimoto writes, recalling his earliest and most vivid recollection of the sea, “I spied it from a Tokaido Line train, the seascape passing from left to right. It must have been autumn, because the sky had such vast, eye-opening clarity. We were riding high on a cliff, and the sea flickered far below like frames of a motion picture, only to disappear behind the rocks. The horizon line where the azure sea met the brilliant sky was razor sharp, like a samurai sword’s blade. Captivated by this startling yet oddly familiar scene, I felt I was gazing on a primordial landscape.”
