Catalogue of an exhibition held at Fundación MAPFRE: Barcelona, Feb. 19-May 8, 2016; Madrid, June 23-Sept. 24, 2016. "The exhibition is split into five series, dedicated to the artist's five large series and includes: Seascapes (1980- ), Portraits [wax works at Madame Tussauds] (1994-1999), Theaters (1976- ), Dioramas [from the American Museum of Natural History, New York City] (1976-2012) and Lightning Fields (2006- ). His work is characterized by an immense natural beauty and a high technical virtuosity. The photographer has managed to reinterpret some of the most characteristic genres of the classic photography tradition, rejecting digital technology in favor of traditional methods. Overall, the work of Hiroshi Sugimoto is a profound meditation on the nature of perception, illusion, representation, life and death."--Fundación MAPFRE website.
