The experience of contemplating the sea transcends specific time and place in these near-abstract photographs. Although they seem almost Romantic in their evocation of landscape, Sugimoto has said: 'When I look at nature I see the artificiality behind it. Even though the seascape is the least changed part of nature, population and the resulting pollution have made nature into something artificial'.
