From a distance, behind the huge panes of his studio, the buildings made of glass, symbols of an ultramodern and denatured New York, appear as blocks of Lego. The Japanese photographer pulls exactly the same view out of a drawer, a panoramic image made up of three negatives sellotaped together, reminding us of the city's architecture of a decade ago. They're from a time when wooden water towers were the most picturesque structures in this centre of the world. Sugimoto's gaze is touched with nostalgia, an unconditional love of nature and lost traditions.
