Hiroshi Sugimoto (b. 1948) is a photographer known for both the technical achievements of his works and their conceptual aspects. For this early photograph from his Theaters series, U.A. Playhouse, Great Neck, New York, 1978, Sugimoto exposed his camera film over the long duration of a feature film with the movie projector providing the only source of light. The result is a luminescent and surreal image which captures a long period of time in a single image (est. $10,000-15,000).
