Hiroshi Sugimoto (b. 1948) is one of the most-collected living photographers. Several of his works have achieved over $1 million at auction. 

In 1997 Sugimoto began documenting architecturally important buildings, most with a connection to Modernism, around the world after receiving a commission from the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. 

This image, of Frank Lloyd Wright's "Usonian" residential masterpiece in Los Angeles was  built in 1939. Relative to some of his other homes the Sturges Residence is on the small side and measures aprox. 1,200 square feet. Its notable characteristic (depicted in Sugimoto's image) is the impressive 21-foot panoramic deck. 

Some of the other structures Sugimoto shot during this period include Tadao Ando's "Church of the Light", Philippe Starck's "Asahi Breweries", Mies van der Rohe's "Barcelona Pavilion", the U.N. Headquarters and the World Trade Center. 

Additional images available on request.
