Over the past twenty years, a small but highly influential group of German photographers has completely altered our notions of the photographic image. This group, which includes Thomas Struth, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff, and Candida Höfer, among others, all studied under Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Dusseldorf Kunstakademie.
During the month of May, a major retrospective exhibition of the work of Struth (b. 1954) opened at the Dallas Museum of Art. The show, which will travel to three other cities during the next year contains over ninety photographs spanning the full range of Struth's career, from 1977 to the present. It is a perfect opportunity to review the available monographs presently in-print on this major figure in contemporary photography.
The exhibition, and its catalogue contains many well-known images, such as the Museum series, but also an equal number of unknowns. The chance to see this number of works, pulled together from such a rich oeuvre, should not be missed. There are pairings and juxtapositions of images, from bodies of work as disparate as the 'Paradise' series and the Tokyo cityscapes, that reveal underlying structures not readily apparent outside of such a survey.
