The Day After.

The Day After. By Hiroshi Sugimoto. Pace Gallery, 2011. 108 pp., illustrated throughout, 11,75x9,5". Images from here.

Book description:

"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."
