Published on the occasion of the 1998 exhibition Thomas Struth: Still at the Centre National de la Photographie., Paris (traveled to Carré d'Art -- Musée d'Art Contemporain, Nimes and the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam). From the foreword: "Thomas Struth is considered one of the major figures of German photography... [Regarding the museum photographs] Alternatively sympathetic and ironic, Struth conducts an extremely subtle analysis of the position of the work of art in our society, of our relation to history and heritage and, lastly, of the mysterious and enduring power of art over human beings (a phenomenon which, paradoxically, photography, of all art forms, seems the best equipped to reveal)... This book marks the first major European exhibition dedicated to Thomas Struth."
