by Thomas Weski
Since the 1990s, Thomas Struth has been one of the best-known and internationally successful photographers of the German art scene. Struth studied painting under Gerhard Richter and photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher, a combination that decisively influenced his vision.
This volume is a compilation of representative photographs from each series of works in Struth’s oeuvre: street photographs from the 1970s and ‘80s; empathetic portraits (particularly of families); large-format “museum photographs”; nature studies; jungle photographs (New Pictures from Paradise); and, from the latest series, images from the world of science. As this compendium of his work shows, Struth has succeeded in setting new aesthetic standards thanks to his great precision, chromatic clarity, sound sense of composition and intellectual profundity.
