Hiroshi Sugimoto's Time Exposed is a haunting portfolio of images that offer a primordial, nonlinear sense of time. The artist created these seascapes between 1980 and 1991, yet chose to use a large-format camera, long exposure, and 19th-century techniques.

Transformed into a suite of 50 lithographs, these images capture vastly different bodies of water around the world in different conditions and at different times of day. Visually minimal, they represent wholeness, infinity, and the sublime beauty of quietude.
