Hiroshi Sugimoto’s soft focus towards architecture photography

The Japanese photographer has visited and critiqued hundreds of buildings and museums around the world. His photographic style is to capture one part of the building, blur and soften the geometric lines, and caption the photograph with only the name of the building without the date, the location, the name of the architect or other details. He intends for the audience to appreciate these architectures in their most essential form and design, free of other association with the time place and history. The photograph displayed is the Bauhause Stairway. However, it skews your perception when you realise it is also in MoMa and documented in 2013.

“MoMA, Bauhaus Stairway,” 2013.
