Lot Essay


Water and air. So very commonplace are these substances, they hardly attract attention?and yet they vouchsafe our very existence. ...Mystery of mysteries, water and air are right there before us in the sea. Every time I view the sea, I feel a calming sense of security, as if visiting my ancestral home; I embark on a voyage of seeing.
—Hiroshi Sugimoto
