Hiroshi Sugimoto - Prosthetic Eyes

Prosthetic Eyes
Collection of Hiroshi Sugimoto

Sugimoto first met Robert and Lisa Sainsbury when they bought works from Japan from his gallery in New York, works that are currently on show in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. Sugimoto is now an internationally acclaimed artist working with photography. A career as a dealer of antiquities led to personal acquisitions, and his intriguing collection includes early medial illustrations and glass eyes.
