Catalogue Note

"Can someone today view a scene just as primitive man might have?... Although the land is forever changing its form, the sea, I thought, is immutable. Thus began my travels back through time to the ancient seas of the world."

Hiroshi Sugimoto quoted in: Exhibition Catalogue, Tokyo, Mori Art Museum, Hiroshi Sugimoto, 2005, p. 109.
