Editorial Reviews

Review

"...The Düsseldorf School of Photography [is] a must buy for anyone interested in contemporary photography... the book can serve as a fantastic introduction to the people who made contemporary photography what it currently is." --Joerg Colberg --Conscientious Blog

Anyone hoping to comprehend art photography today must reckon with the crystalline, super-sized work of Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff, Candida Höfer and other Germans who studied in the 1970s and '80s under Bernd and Hilla Becher. In Stefan Gronert's "The Düsseldorf School of Photography," superbly printed images by these artists--Mr. Gursky's hypnotic picture of a "99 Cent" store in California, for starters--accompany a helpful essay that fills in gaps about the Bechers and their influential progeny. --Richard Woodward, Wall Street Journal, December 16, 2010

Format: Hardcover
This beautifully illustrated and classy publication is well worth reading. The introduction is informative and insightful about the photographers, their background and their photos. The photos range from the seemingly banal to the strikingly artistic. I returned several times to some of the photos to look for the point, the content, the meaning and each time discovered a bit more and learned more about the subtle and aesthetic qualities of photos. This is not a "look at my pretty large format huge depth of field pictures" book... it is about the search for style and technique and for the order, disorder and art that saturates our world and remains just beyond our view until someone with a camera says... "Look...this is how to see...and know."

This book is amazing and well printed but the one I received had two important pages ripped off, tear down in the middle of the printed pictures.
