Hiroshi Sugimoto is a Japanese photographer. He has spoken of his work as an expression of ‘time exposed’, or photographs serving as a time capsule for a series of events in time. His work also focuses on transience of life, and the conflict between life and death.

Sugimoto is also deeply influenced by the writings and works of Marcel Duchamp, as well as the Dadaist and Surrealist movements as a whole. He has also expressed a great deal of interest in late 20th century modern architecture. His use of an 8×10 large-format camera and extremely long exposures have garnered Sugimoto a reputation as a photographer of the highest technical ability. He is equally acclaimed for the conceptual and philosophical aspects of his work.

Sugimoto is also an accomplished architect, approaching his work from many different perspectives and architecturally is one that he uses to design the settings for his exhibitions. He also gets involved with the performance art occurring beside them. This allows him to frame his works precisely the way he wants to.
