Zweite, Armin. HIROSHI SUGIMOTO: Revolution. 88 pages, including 33 b&w plates. 4to, cloth. Ostfildern, Hatje Cantz, 2013.
The 15 photographs in this series were taken between 1986 and 1997. They are all night time seascapes which have been turned clockwise by 90 degrees, their verticality is emphasized by the long, narrow format. The real focus of this book is the text, which delves deep into the abstract and conceptual ideas that infuse all of Sugimoto's photographic work. Even Sugimoto's own forward does not reference this series specifically, but talks instead about his transformative experiences of the horizon.
