Hiroshi Sugimoto | Architecture of Time

All images used in this article were taken from ‘Hiroshi Sugimoto: Architecture of Time’ (Schneider 2002) – Published alongside an exhibition of the same name. 


“…it seemed like an interesting idea to photograph 20th Century architecture out of focus.” – Sugimoto explains. “The concept of time applies – I’m trying to recreate the imaginative visions of the architecture before the architect built the building, so I can trace back the original vision from the finished product.”




Netley Abbey – Southampton

I’ve had a little break this week, and during that time we went to Netley in Southampton. Home to the stunning ruins of a 13th Century abbey, I have visited before and this time decided to photograph it. I used film, so those images will come later. Below are a couple of photos  I took on my phone of the interesting textures found around the Abbey.

I adore this exposed brickwork. It changes throughout the Abbey, I imagine due to repairs. More photographs of Netley Abbey to come!
