Beautifully composed images of the interiors of historic movie theaters and the surroundings of small town drive-ins, Sugimoto records the scene during the length of a movie shown at the same time of the exposure. The result is magical--the screen radiates white light, casting a subtly diffused glow over the entire surroundings. The production level on this project is undeniably superb.
