Thomas Struth

Thomas Struth is a preeminent contemporary photographer. Often working in series to document a range of subjects that has included urban scenes, rain forests, and portraits, one of his best-known projects, the Museum Photographs, captures visitors admiring works of art, serving as an examination of both the momentary and eternal in contemporary culture. Along with his German peers Andreas Gursky, Candida H?fer, and Thomas Ruff, Struth emerged from the Kunstakademie D?sseldorf under the instruction of Bernd and Hilla Becher. The Becher?s meticulous practice has influenced Struth?s systematic approach to taking photographs, while his other teacher, Gerhard Richter, inspired his interest in painterly images. The recipient of numerous solo exhibitions worldwide, Struth was notably the subject of a major retrospective held at the Dallas Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Born in 1954 in Geldern, Germany, Struth currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
