Description - Sugimoto Portraits by Tracey Bashkoff

New Lower Price Hiroshi Sugimoto here turns to the wax figures he first explored in his "Dioramas" series. Combining poetic imagination and noble elegance, this body of work presents life-size black-and-white portraits of historical figures--Henry VIII, each of his six wives and Oscar Wilde, among others--photographed in wax museums and dramatically lit so as to create haunting images. Featuring an interview with the artist by Tracey Bashkoff and essays by Carol Armstrong, Norman Bryson, Thomas Kellein and Nancy Spector, this book offers fresh insights into the work of this important contemporary artist. "Portraits" was created specially for the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin and was exhibited at the former Guggenheim Soho.
