Sugimoto for Hermès

As many of you know, Hiroshi Sugimoto is perhaps one of the most well respected photographers of our time. His landscape photographs are breathtakingly serene. A few years ago we learned that Hermès was creating a series of editioned scarves by Sugimoto and we were immediately intrigued. The scarves allowed Sugimoto to explore color in light over the course of the ten-year project. Here is a quote from Sugimoto as he describes this work.

"From late-2009 to the beginning of 2010, my daily routine saw me rise at 5:30 every morning. First thing, I would check for hints of light dawning above the eastern horizon. If the day promised fair weather, next I would sight the “morning star” shining to the upper right of the nascent dawn. Depending on how bright Venus appeared, I could judge the clarity of the air that day. Tokyo is clear almost every day in winter thanks to the prevailing seasonal west-higheast-low pressure patterns. Only then did I ready my old Polaroid camera and start warming up a film pack from the long winter night chill."
