The elevator doors open and you find yourself in the striking, low-lit ambiance of Sugimoto's exhibition.

Guests milling around the gallery,  one of Tokyo's largest commercial gallery spaces.

Hiroshi Sugimoto, in the blue jumper, talks with one of the guests at the opening.

The lights switch on and off automatically every fifteen seconds or so in this installation of 91 catalogues of Sugimoto's 'Theater' series, each with a day-glo cover that glows in the dark.

A mysterious wooden box, filled with fragments of blue glass, forms part of the installation. Ask the gallery staff for more details.
