From the publisher: "It was not until the age of 47 that Ernestine Ruben discovered the art of making photographs. Her rise on the international horizon has been hailed as meteoric, but like most seemingly instant artistic careers, hers seasoned over a long period, combining life-long interests in sculpture, dance, architecture, and the history of art. Focus, structure, and dimensionality have been key points within the making of Ruben's images, whether the subject matter is the artist's extraordinary work with the sculpture of Auguste Rodin in Paris, the Jewish Cemetery in Prague, or the ancient ruins of Petra. Ernestine Ruben's photographs and installations have been widely published, collected, and exhibited internationally."
