Title: Portraits Of Hiroshi Sugimoto: About Realism And Portraits [portraits De Hiroshi Sugimoto: Sobre Realismo E Retratos]
Author: de Almeida A.P.
Abstract: This paper aims to discuss the materialization of the presence of british royalty from the sixteenth century in the series of photographs entitled Portraits by Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto. Photographers own words, paradigms of photographic discourse and characteristics of photography inter-relate to the particularities of Japanese culture. The text departs from traditional photographic discourse that pervades the representation of portraits, drawn mainly from the writings of Roland Barthes. It is precisely representation through portraits that represent one of major paradigms of realistic nature of photography. Realism discourse seems to extrapolate Sugimotos photography to include engravings and paintings based on figurative tradition of the British royalty. The conclusion points out that Sugimotos portraits are structured as an ironic counterpoint to the belief of reproductive realism in the photographic image.
