3 SnapFacts about Sugimoto:

* His works frequently sell at auction with a record price of $1.88 million achieved at Christie's New York in 2007 for a work from 'Time Exposed' series

*Sugimoto exhibited in MoMA, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Palais de Tokyo, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and Serpentine Galleries

* Sugimoto's 'In Praise of Shadows' series was inspired by Gerhard Richter's iconic images of burning candles and a 1930s essay on Japanese aesthetics with the same name. This long-exposure photograph preserves the entire lifetime of a burning candle in a single image
