Hiroshi Sugimoto: Seascapes

"Water and air. So very commonplace are these substances, they hardly attract any attention--and yet they vouchsafe our very existence...Mystery of mysteries, water and air are right there before us in the sea. Every time I view the sea, I feel a calming sense of security, as if visiting my ancestral home; I embark on a voyage of seeing." -Hiroshi Sugimoto, photographer.
