Theaters by Hiroshi Sugimoto.

    For these pictures, Sugimoto enters a cinema and sets up his camera before the movie starts screening. He uses very long exposure and black and white film to create these pictures. The shutter is opened at the start of the movie and closed at the end of the credits resulting in a picture depicting a completely white screen and a theater bathed in light from the projector and the screen.
    One could see these bright white screens illuminating dark rooms as a metaphor for art and culture illuminating every-day monotony. An other possible point of view is that these white blank screens are a critique of modern day cinema.
