SEASCAPES

seascape by Hiroshi Sugimoto via au pays des merveilles Seascapes is a series by Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto.  In 1980, he began to photograph the sea and its horizon all over the world, with an old-fashioned large format camera and varying exposures.   He describes his work as ‘time exposed’, a time capsule for a series of events in time, in this case up to 3 hours of sea in one image.  If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know I’m fascinated with seascapes myself (see a selection of mine on the blog here and on flickr here) and these images only add to my obsession.  I find it mesmerizing how water surfaces can look so different each time, how the light changes its colors and how something so beautiful can be so threatening at the same time.

    Yess, I thought the same thing Joyce! Rothko..
    Prachtige beelden, mijn ouders noemde mij Marloes naar ‘zij die vanuit de zee kwam’!

    Wat mooi, zo ongelofelijk mooi. Ik vind de zee heel eng, omdat je niet ziet wat eronder zit. Maar langs de andere kant is dat water zo intrigerend. En zo eindeloos schoon.
