"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"I am very curious about the artistic stage of imprinting the memories of the time record. A fossil is made over four-hundred-fifty million years- it takes that much time. But photography, it’s instant. So, to me, photography functions as a fossilization of time."
- Hiroshi Sugimoto
