Andreas Gursky has been widely celebrated for his monumental, extraordinarily detailed pictures, exploring contemporary global themes. This comprehensive book takes a fresh look at the artist’s iconic images from the past four decades.
In a landmark conversation between two of the most important figures in contemporary photography, Gursky talks to Jeff Wall about the sources for his photographic vision, while an essay by Hayward Gallery director Ralph Rugoff explores important and neglected areas of the artist’s work. Presenting the artist’s best-known works―including “Paris, Montparnasse” (1993), “99 Cent” (2001) and “Chicago Board of Trade III” (2009)―as well as new, previously unpublished photographs, this is an indispensable survey of 40 years of work from one of the world’s most influential artists.
