Hiroshi Sugimoto's diorama photographs taken at the American Museum of Natural History first brought him acclaim more than thirty years ago.  In this article by The New York Times, he returns to the museum and discusses issues of memory, time, and preservation. 

His work is now on view at Pace London, pairing his bare seascapes with Mark Rothko’s late black-and-gray paintings.
