Published in conjunction with Thomas Ruff's first ever retrospective, at the Tate Liverpool in 2003, this volume covers for the first time the artist's most substantial oeuvre created since his beginnings in 1979. A remarkable study and celebration of the work of one of the most acclaimed and ground-breaking photographers working today.
Filled with full-color reproductions of the photographs, complete with essays delivering a thorough, deep and subtle analysis of Ruff's work and the full importance of its meaning, as well as what renders it unique, this catalogue is a treasure trove of information on every aspect of the photographer's artistic search and endeavor. It includes a catalogue raisonne, essays by various authors, an illustrated biography, a list of exhibitions and a bibliography.
