Published on the occasion of the 1998 exhibition Sugimoto at the Fundación "la Caixa," Madrid and Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisboa.
Very good (faint crease at the spine, and bump to lower-left corner affecting the text block).
Includes an exceptional collection of Sugimoto's dioramas, wax museums, theaters, drive-ins, day seascapes, night seascapes and a selection of images from the artist's work Hall of Thirty-Three Bays. One of the finest catalogues of Sugimoto's work published to-date, with a broad selection of all the series that have informed Sugimoto's work since 1976 (some previously unpublished, particularly the diorama series). The reproductions are absolutely exquisite.
