Thomas Ruff: Photographs 1979 - present, by Matthais Winzen.
Thomas Ruff is a German photographer. He has been described as “a master of edited and reimagined images”.
This book covers the first retrospective exhibition of his work from the late 1970s to 2003.
All fields of contemporary Western life are captured by the lens of his large-format camera: petit bourgeois homes in the provinces and suburbs; modernist and current architectural structures; and the startlingly alien faces of fellow human beings.
Substantial reproductions are accompanied by scholarly essays and an illustrated biography.
This is a new book in good condition.
The image included here is taken from the book and is entitled "Porträt 1999."
