The elusive Italian fashion label, Costume National, has collaborated with the famed photographer, Hiroshi Sugimoto, for an exhibition that captures the mechanical eeriness of modern architecture. Hiroshi is no stranger to capturing the stillness of the manmade, but is more adept to presenting nature (particularly seascapes, lightning and unexplored territories) without the beauty of colour. The usual pin-sharp photography of Hiroshi has been abandoned for a spooky, blurred perspective of architectural landmarks. In this series, called "Architecture of Time", he beautifies the organic and the unnatural simultaneously, almost coming full circle with his work.
The exhibition is now open until January 13, 2014, at the Costume National Aoyama Complex in Tokyo, Japan.
