Hiroshi Sugimoto: Opticks

Inspired by the work of Sir Isaac Newton, whose 1704 book of the same name describes the refraction of light through prisms, Hiroshi Sugimoto’s new series Opticks explores the infinite nature of color. The large-scale works, shown for the first time in the U.S., present enlargements of Polaroids that record the spectrum of light Sugimoto observed in his Tokyo studio.
