The Day After. By Hiroshi Sugimoto. Pace Gallery, 2011. 108 pp., illustrated throughout, 11,75x9,5". Images from here.
"In Hiroshi Sugimoto's first solo presentation since joining The Gallery Pace, the revered photographer and architect exhibits two new 50-foot photographic diptychs from his 'Lightning Field' series (2009-10), accompanied by nine single 'Lightning Field' photographs.
Created in the darkroom with the help of a Van de Graaff generator, sheets of unexposed film are subjected to electrical discharges, creating sparks of light that scar the film with patterns reminiscent of organic life forms and tree-filled landscapes.
Seven photographs from the artist’s iconic 'Seascapes' series will also be on view."
