Cinerama Dome, Hollywood (1993), Hiroshi Sugimoto’s Theaters

 “I’m a habitual self-interlocutor. Around the time I started photographing at the Natural History Museum, one evening I had a near-hallucinatory vision. The question-and- answer session that led up to this vision went something like this: Suppose you shoot a
whole movie in a single frame? And the answer: You get a shining screen. Immediately I
sprang into action, experimenting toward realizing this vision. Dressed up as a tourist, I walked into a cheap cinema in the East Village with a large-format camera. As soon as  the movie finished, I clicked the shutter closed. That evening, I developed the film, and the vision exploded behind my eyes.”
