Hiroshi Sugimoto—New Work
Date: Wednesday February 5, 2014, at 7 pm
Location: Harold M. Williams Auditorium, Getty Center
Admission: Free. Reservation required
Photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto speaks about his recent projects, including the series Photogenic Drawings, which take as their subject early negatives made by W.H.F. Talbot between 1835–46. Last year Sugimoto returned to New York City's American Museum of Natural History—the site of some of his earliest work—to photograph new habitat dioramas. He also discusses his renewed interest in previous themes like architecture and movie theaters.
