Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto has always used his camera to explore unseen phenomena like artifacts of time, light, the elements, and human perception. In his latest series, Lightning Fields, he essentially established a micro-environment in the dark room akin to the conditions of an electrical storm. Sugimoto creates lush large-scale black and white prints that resemble botanical and biological images, landscapes, high-power microscopic magnifications, and lightning itself. Sugimoto is considered one of the greatest living photographers, he constantly pushes the limits of what photography can achieve.
