From the depths of the oceans to the edge of the sea, the Reel Foto blog now ventures out of the water to take a familiar yet refreshing view of the sea. This is how Hiroshi Sugimoto captures his Seascapes; bleak, black and beautiful.
Hiroshi Sugimoto is an artist and photographer well-known for his diverse catalog of works. One of his most popular is his Seascapes, an ongoing project he started in 1980 using a large-format camera. According to him, "Mystery of mysteries, water and air are right there before us in the sea. Every time I view the sea, I feel a calming sense of security, as if visiting my ancestral home; I embark on a voyage of seeing."
This is one of those posts where the less said, the better, so sit back and enjoy these seascapes by Hiroshi Sugimoto.
Additional information on Hiroshi Sugimoto's Seascapes as well as his other works can be found on his website. The Seascapes appear in the book Hiroshi Sugimoto. Other outstanding works by Sugimoto are Hiroshi Sugimoto: Architecture and Sugimoto: Portraits.
