Item Description: Sonnabend Sundell Editions and eyestorm, New York and London, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. First edition, first and only printing. Limited edition of 1000 copies, with a signed hand-pulled photogravure. Hardbound. Photographs from the 'Theaters' series (including movie theaters and drive-in theaters) and a statement by Hiroshi Sugimoto. Essay by Professor Hans Belting. Designed by Takaaki Matsumoto and Larissa Nowicki of Matsumoto Incorporated, New York. Also includes an exhibition history, bibliography and index. 224 pp., with 96 quadratone plates. 12 x 11 inches. All images were scanned and separated using quadratone separation, by Robert J. Hennessey. All plate sections were beautifully printed using drytrap offset printing on Mohawk Superfine Smooth Eggshell 100lb paper, by Meridian Printing, Rhode Island. The cover was silk-screened with Day-Glo ink and then matte film laminated. The book was Smythsewn bound and is enclosed in a specially designed brushed aluminum slipcase. The design and reproductions are absolutely exquisite and it is one of the most beautiful photography books I have ever seen! This deluxe limited edition is accompanied by a limited edition of Hiroshi Sugimoto's 'U.A. Walker, New York, 1978' photograph, scrupulously reproduced in hand-pulled photogravure by the renowned printer Jon Goodman. The prints were signed by Sugimoto (the book is not numbered or signed), and are cased in a custom-made, piano hinged, brushed aluminum box (the edition number is hand-written on a printed paper paste-down sheet affixed inside the upper aluminum case cover). The image (approx. 11 1/2 by 17 1/2 inches) was printed on acid-free BFA paper (21 1/2 by 17 1/2 inches). [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004), and in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume I. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2004).] CONDITION: New in publisher's packaging (opened only for inspection). From the publisher: "This book is the first-ever [major] collection of Hiroshi Sugimoto's 'Theater' photographs. To create each image, Sugimoto would take a long-exposure photograph of a cinema screen for the entire duration of a movie, resulting in a blank white screen. 'Different movies give different brightnesses,' he said. 'If it's an optimistic story, I usually end up with a bright screen; if it's a sad story, it's a dark screen. Occult movie? Very dark.' The project was partly the result of wanting to make a simple form visible: 'The simplest forms have authority, like a blank white light. And how do you photograph that? You need a framework to make it visible. But this is not simply white light; it is the result of too much information.'" Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 100145

Item Description: Sonnabend Sundell Editions and eyestorm, New York and London, 1988. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Signed "Sugimoto" in silver marker on the title page by Sugimoto. Soft cover. Pale taupe heavy wrappers with "Sugimoto" printed on cover and spine, with matching dust jacket. Photographs and introduction (in Japanese) by Hiroshi Sugimoto. Project Director, Kazuko Koike. Edited by Atsuko Koyanagi. Designed by Takaaki Matsumoto/M Plus M Incorporated, New York. Includes a brief biography, list of exhibitions, grants and collections. Unpaginated (100 pp.), with 43 black-and-white plates beautifully printed on heavy coated paper by Mitsumura Printing Co., Ltd., Japan. 10-1/8 x 13-1/4 inches. Published on the occasion of the 1988 exhibition "Hiroshi Sugimoto" at Sonnabend Gallery, New York, Sagacho Exhibit Space, Tokyo and Zeito Photo Salon, Tokyo. CONDITION: Fine in Fine dust jacket. Sugimoto's first monograph, this exhibition catalogue introduced readers to the three most significant bodies of work he has produced since the late-1970s. From the artist (on Dioramas): "Upon first arriving in New York in 1974, I did the tourist thing. Eventually I visited the Natural History Museum, where I made a curious discovery: the stuffed animals positioned before painted backdrops looked utterly fake, yet by taking a quick peek with one eye closed, all perspective vanished, and suddenly they looked very real. I'd found a way to see the world as a camera does. However fake the subject, once photographed, it's as good as real." On Theaters: "I'm a habitual self-interlocutor. Around the time I started photographing at the Natural History Museum, one evening I had a near-hallucinatory vision. The question-and-answer session that led up to this vision went something like this: Suppose you shoot a whole movie in a single frame? And the answer: You get a shining screen. Immediately I sprang into action, experimenting toward realizing this vision. Dressed up as a tourist, I walked into a cheap cinema in the East Village with a large-format camera. As soon as the movie started, I fixed the shutter at a wide-open aperture, and two hours later when the movie finished, I clicked the shutter closed. That evening, I developed the film, and the vision exploded behind my eyes." On Seascapes: "Water and air. So very commonplace are these substances, they hardly attract attention -- and yet they vouchsafe our very existence. The beginnings of life are shrouded in myth: Let there be water and air. Living phenomena spontaneously generated from water and air in the presence of light, though that could just as easily suggest random coincidence as a Deity. Let's just say that there happened to be a planet with water and air in our solar system, and moreover at precisely the right distance from the sun for the temperatures required to coax forth life. While hardly inconceivable that at least one such planet should exist in the vast reaches of universe, we search in vain for another similar example. Mystery of mysteries, water and air are right there before us in the sea. Every time I view the sea, I feel a calming sense of security, as if visiting my ancestral home; I embark on a voyage of seeing." Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 110422

Item Description: Sonnabend Sundell Editions and eyestorm, New York and London, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. Price is net to all; promotional discounts do not apply.First edition, first and only printing. Hardbound. Photographs from the 'Theaters' series (including movie theaters and drive-in theaters) and a statement by Hiroshi Sugimoto. Essay by Professor Hans Belting. Designed by Takaaki Matsumoto and Larissa Nowicki of Matsumoto Incorporated, New York. Also includes an exhibition history, bibliography and index. 224 pp., with 96 quadratone plates. 12 x 11 inches. This first trade edition was limited to 4000 hardbound copies. [Cited in Andrew Roth, ed., The Open Book. (Göteborg, Sweden: Hasselblad Center in association with Steidl Verlag, Göttingen, Germany, 2004), and in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume I. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2004).] Out of print. Scarce. CONDITION: New in publisher's shrink-wrap. All images were scanned and separated using quadratone separation, by Robert J. Hennessey. All plate sections were beautifully printed using drytrap offset printing on Mohawk Superfine Smooth Eggshell 100lb paper, by Meridian Printing, Rhode Island. The cover was silk-screened with Day-Glo ink and then matte film laminated. The book was Smythsewn bound and is enclosed in a specially designed cardboard slipcase covered in silver paper. The design and reproductions are absolutely exquisite and it is one of the most beautiful photography books I have ever seen! From the publisher: "This book is the first-ever [major] collection of Hiroshi Sugimoto's 'Theater' photographs. To create each image, Sugimoto would take a long-exposure photograph of a cinema screen for the entire duration of a movie, resulting in a blank white screen. 'Different movies give different brightnesses,' he said. 'If it's an optimistic story, I usually end up with a bright screen; if it's a sad story, it's a dark screen. Occult movie? Very dark.' The project was partly the result of wanting to make a simple form visible: 'The simplest forms have authority, like a blank white light. And how do you photograph that? You need a framework to make it visible. But this is not simply white light; it is the result of too much information.'". Bookseller Inventory # 101270
