224 pp., 96 quadratone illustrations, 11x12".
Sugimoto's second most well-known body of work, after the exquisite and minimal 'Seascapes,' are his 'Theaters.' Beautifully composed images of the interiors of historic movie theaters and the surroundings of small town drive-ins, Sugimoto records the scene during the length of a movie shown at the same time of the exposure. The result is magical--the screen radiates white light, casting a subtly diffused glow over the entire surroundings. The production level on this project is undeniably superb. Reproductions are quadratone on 100lb Mohawk Superfine paper; each clothbound volume is slipcased. There is also a separate 1000 copy limited edition, housed in a brushed aluminum case, which rivals Sugimoto's Time Exposed portfolio. Either volume is an unbelievable value.

Walker, New York, 1978' photogravure print. The prints were numbered and signed by the artist, and are cased in a custom-made, piano hinged, brushed aluminum box. The image (approx 11-1/2x17-1/2") was printed on acid-free BFA paper and is 21-1/2x17-1/2" in size. The book is not signed and numbered, only the print.
