Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The German photographic movement commonly known as the Dusseldorf School of Photography has become synonymous with artistic excellence and innovation. It began in the mid-1970s at the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf, under the instruction of the photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher, known for their comparative grids of mundane industrial buildings captured with an objective and clinical eye. This school has not only birthed some of today's most important and successful photographers, but has also had a fundamental and lasting influence on the history of the medium. The Dusseldorf School of Photography presents over 160 images in a spectacular overview of the breadth of the Dusseldorf School from the early 1970s to today. This impeccable survey is filled with superb reproductions of the best-known photographs by three generations of key Dusseldorf artists: Bernd and Hilla Becher, Laurenz Berges, Elger Esser, Andreas Gursky, Candida Hofer, Axel Hutte, Simone Nieweg, Thomas Ruff, Jorg Sasse, Thomas Struth and Petra Wunderlich. With a scholarly text, extensive artist bios and a plate section dedicated to each of these artists, The Dusseldorf School of Photography offers the first comprehensive assessment of this important photographic movement-one that dominates the salesrooms and museums of our times.

Synopsis:

The Dsseldorf School has become an acknowledged label, and today is synonymous with high artistic standards and a highly diverse and innovative approach to the medium. Our book deals with three issues: The work and teachings of Hilla and Bernd Becher who in 1976 gave artistic photography an institutional roof at the Dsseldorf Art Academy.

Two generations of celebrated artists have since emerged, including Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff, Andreas Gursky, Candida Hfer, Petra Wunderlich, Axel Htte, Elger Esser, Laurenz Berges et al. And finally the image factory, "Grieger Lab," where the artists discovered the technical potential of large-format photography. Today, Grieger Lab produces big

prints for more than 150 artists the world over. The book offers a first encyclopedic overview and introduces the artists with their best-known pictures. There has been no other art movement in Germany since the Bauhaus to possess such a worldwide appeal as this new Dsseldorf School.
