He opens the aperture when a film begins and closes it when it ends. In the resulting images, the screen becomes a luminous white box and the ambient light subtly brings forward the rich architectural details of these spaces. Sugimoto began by photographing the classic movie palaces built in the 1920s and'30s, their ornate architectural elements a testament to the cultural importance of the burgeoning movie industry. He continued the series with drive-in theaters. In the last decade, Sugimoto has photographed historic theaters in Europe as well as disused theaters that show the ravages of time.Taken together, these photographs present an extended meditation on the passage of time, a recurring theme in his artwork. Theaters , the third in a series of books on Sugimoto's art, presents 130 photographs, 21 of which have never before been published.
