Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto has long been a favorite of mine, and his American Theater series is also an enthralling collection of images. The grainy dark black and white photos capture the typology of a long dissolving or at least changing industry. Many of these gems of cinema and theater have long been defunct or renovated to the bland palette of the contemporary movie theater. You can view the entire series over at C4 Contemporary Art.
