From the publisher: "What kind of experience might looking at a statue of Buddha represent today? This is the problematic broached by Hiroshi Sugimoto in this book, which establishes a conversation between his photographs, artworks from his personal collection and his writing. It is the first major monograph about the artist and reveals an essential aspect of his work that is inspired by ancient civilisations and their spirituality."
