I am currrently in love with the work of Japanese, but New York based, photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto. Below is a few of his images from the series “Theatres”.

I’m a habitual self-interlocutor. Around the time I started photographing at the Natural
History Museum, one evening I had a near-hallucinatory vision. The question-and-
answer session that led up to this vision went something like this: Suppose you shoot a
whole movie in a single frame? And the answer: You get a shining screen. Immediately I
sprang into action, experimenting toward realizing this vision. Dressed up as a tourist, I
walked into a cheap cinema in the East Village with a large-format camera. As soon as
the movie started, I fixed the shutter at a wide-open aperture, and two hours later when
the movie finished, I clicked the shutter closed. That evening, I developed the film, and
the vision exploded behind my eyes.

Well, these pictures I shot inside artist Laura Jones studio, popped up everywhere, including on The Design Files and now also inside the pages of Yen Magazine.
