ON THE BEACH, which comes side by side with Seascapes, is first making its appearance after more than 20 years.
Sugimoto's newest solo exhibition "Aujourd’hui le monde est mort [Lost Human Genetic Archive]", which is being held from April 25 to September 2014, is catching a lot of attention not only in France but all around the world. Apart from his "Seascapes", "Dioramas" and "Lightning Fields", the exhibition includes his newest series "ON THE BEACH", which has been unpublished for over 20 years.
"Persevering with my lonely task on the deserted beach, I half-succumbed to the notion that human civilization had ended. The sight of crafted objects rotting away is at once dreadful and beautiful." - Hiroshi Sugimoto（Excerpts from "Time's Yardstick", included in this photo book）
The photo book includes 24 works from the series, and is written in both English and French.
