Dioramas image

By Hiroshi Sugimoto

Dioramas, a body of work that spans almost four decades, narrates a story of the cycle of life, death and rebirth, from prehistoric aquatic life to the propagation of reptile and animal life to homo sapiens destruction of the earth through a clever visual trick that persuades the viewer that the photographer has captured a lived moment in time, although each scene is an elaborately crafted fiction.
