I am so happy I discovered  Hiroshi Sugimoto, a Japanese photographer based in NY. I was first mesmerized by his photographs of Seascapes, shot in locations all over the world. They were so calming to look at them. But when I searched his work I saw there was more to it. In the seventies he did two interesting photographic projects: the Theatres series involved photographing old American movie palaces and drive-ins and the Dioramas series in which he photographed displays from the American Museum of Natural History.
