    A great book by a great photographer

    Not just a great photographer. The greatest. All things considered Sugimoto is one of the greatest photographers of all time. Conceptually, his photographs are still way ahead of their time (while still appearing timeless!). Aesthetically he is also one of the greatest technical photographers. His exposures, which can last up to hours long, are perfect and his rich printing is to die for. Sugimoto is a true master of his craft. Having perfected the art of photography, he is constantly aiming to reinvent it as well. This book is a survey of his long career, which is still in full force. The book is marvelously printed. I have seen Sugimoto's prints in person and this book truly does them justice.
