Includes an illustrated biography, list of exhibitions, bibliography and an annotated catalogue raisonné of works since 1979 with 607 color and 502 additional b/w illustrations. Beautifully printed by Druckerei Uhl, Radolfzell. - From the publisher: "No other artist from the famous Bechers' class of photography at the conception and the range of his works as Thomas Ruff. The catalogue of works from 1979 to 2001, which is now available, is the first complete compilation of his photographic work, including the current series of "nudes," which has caused quite a stir and controversial discussions. Preceding the catalog is a series of pictures selected by Thomas Ruff himself. Like his fellow students Andreas Gursky, Axel Hütte, and Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, today the successor to his teachers Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, has essentially contributed to the international acceptance of photography as art."
