Andreas Gursky

£29.99   £35.00
Andreas Gursky is one of the world’s most celebrated contemporary photographers. Since his tutelage under Bernd Becher at Düsseldorf’s renowned Kunstakademie in the 1980s, Gursky has achieved both popular and critical acclaim for his large-format photographs, which established photography as an undisputed medium for contemporary art.
 
This monographic publication accompanies the artist’s first major UK retrospective, opening at Hayward Gallery in January 2018. Fully-illustrated and generously proportioned this comprehensive volume is the essential guide on the artist’s work, spanning early landscape photographs captured on film to newer, more expansive, digitally augmented works. 
 
The book includes a rare interview with the artist conducted by photographer Jeff Wall, which provides a unique insight into Gurksy’s working practices and early experiences. Brian Sholis contributes an essay on the development of Gursky’s landscape photography, while a text by Gerald Schröder, specially translated and appearing in English for the first time, offers an in-depth discussion of Rhein II (1999), which until recently was the world’s most expensive photograph.
