One of the most well-known photographic artists of our time, Hiroshi Sugimoto, has developed a tailor-made concept for the small exhibition rooms in the Museum Brandhorst in Münich with an
exhibition entitled ‘Revolution’. The fifteen large-format works depict images of the sea at night that trace the movement of the moon over a long period – and for a special presentation the pictures have been rotated at a 90°, transforming the horizons into figurative vertical lines.
This unexpected manipulation of the opus is characteristic of Sugimoto’s approach, but also incorporates the familiar aspects of his artistic personality where for over thirty years Sugimoto has portrayed the sea – always in the same, quintessential way. The collection spanning from 1989 through 1997, one can distinguish a subtle evolution of his technique, however always maintaining the distinctive characteristic elements of one of the most renowned photographer of our time.
