Description

From the publisher: "Thomas Struth studied painting under Gerhard Richter and photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. In a highly intense, yet sensitive, manner Thomas Struth takes photos of only those people he knows well. This book also includes his work for documenta IX and stills of a new series of video portraits."
