Snow White is a unique limited edition book containing 76 artworks by Hiroshi Sugimoto, all from his iconic Theaters series. In this book, Sugimoto reveals for the first time the movies that were screened when he took these photographs and the exposure time of each photograph. Each artwork in Snow White is accompanied by the name of the movie, its running time and a short text about each written by Sugimoto. The black-and-white photographs are hand-tipped onto the pages and the book is bound in silk cloth.
For this limited edition, Sugimoto has printed Teatro dei Varii, Colle di Val d'Elsa, 2014, in an edition of twenty-five gelatin silver prints. Every print is signed by the artist. The book and print are housed in an aluminum box.
