The Lonely Palette is currently the podcast-in-residence at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and we're partnering up to bring the museum to you during its closure due to Covid-19 by spotlighting both the rock star and the lesser-known objects from the museum's permanent collection. So relax into your PJs, put your feet up, and let's #MuseumFromHome together.

This week: Trying to capture time in art is like trying to pin a wave upon the sand or hold a moonbeam in your hand.  So leave it to Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto to do it so effectively by taking us to the Golden Age of Cinema.

The exhibition "Seeking Stillness" was view at the MFA from September 24, 2017 to September 3, 2018.
