Each of Thomas Struth's "paradises" is a piece of nature devoted to a specific overarching theme. In his photographs measuring up to 9 by 11 feet, Thomas Struth draws the viewer into the magical semidarkness of forests and jungles, the impenetrable yet bright green of trees, bushes, tropical plants, and mossy brooks. Struth found his paradises in China, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Germany, and, more recently, in Peru, Florida, and Hawaii. With 11 new pictures, the expanded new edition of his Paradise book contains the entire series of 36 photographs as full-page plates. In their essays, psychologist Ingo Hartmann and art historian Hans Rudolf Reust each shed light on our current understanding of so-called untamed nature, its exploitation and mystification, not to mention as a basis for utopias.

A central figure of the new wave of German photography that first arrived in the 1970s, Thomas Struth has continued to have an impact on the world of photography with his large-scale museum interiors, portraits, and architectural photography. Struth has emerged as one of the most compelling voices in contemporary art's critique of the subject and the socio-economic order by creating images that are at once visually arresting and subtly political. This new monograph presents another facet of Struth's oeuvre, assembling a series of flower and landscape photographs produced for a unique project. In 1991, Struth was commissioned to decorate a new hospital in Winterthur, Switzerland. He decided to photograph one large-scale landscape and additional individual plants and flowers for each of the 37 patient rooms. The flower and plant photographs were to be hung on the wall behind the bed, the landscape on the opposite wall. He took the photographs between 1991 and 1993, in the immediate vicinity of Winterthur and the hospital itself: views out over the Thur Valley and the vineyards in the countryside around Zurich, the edges of forests, country lanes, as well as buds, twigs, leaves and withered blooms from the hospital's own garden. With this project, Struth hoped to bring the captivating environment of the Winterthur area into the interior space of the hospital, connecting patients to the outside world.

In Thomas Struth: Strangers and Friends, German photographer Thomas Struth explores the social space and mental state of the modern metropolis. From empty streets to urban crowds, from intimate family portraits to frenzied museum interiors, Struth's photographs portray the relationships, conscious and unconscious, through which we build and abandon our identities in a world of transitory physical. A former student of artist Gerhard Richter and of photographers Hilla and Bernd Becher at the Dusseldorf Academy, Struth began in the early 1980s to make steely black and white photographs of deserted city streets and decaying buildings in a restrained and rigorous style that seemed to underscore his debt to his teachers. Since then, he has continued to depict the empty spaces of the contemporary city in photographs that have an eerie, almost archaeological sense of detachment. But in recent years, his work has diversified in subject, scale, and color to embrace increasingly ambitious subjects and challenging locations. Struth has extended his urban investigation to the inhabitants of the city and the places they live in, from Naples to Tokyo, Chicago to Berlin. This book moves beyond the mute facades of buildings to the expressive architecture of friends', families' and couples' lives. It is not only the anonymous and generic space between buildings, but the psychological and subjective space between people, close and distant, which Struth's looking describes. Thomas Struth: Strangers and Friends is the most complete presentation of the photographer's work to date. It continues a notable tradition of books by German photographers from August Sander and Albert Renger-Patzsch to Hilla and BerndBecher. This is Struth's third book, following Unconscious Places (1987) and Museum Photographs (1993). It is also his first book to be published in the United States.

Thomas Struth's series 'Museums Photographs', which is published in this volume for the first time in full, comprises seventeen oversized colour photos, which were taken between 1989 and 1992 in the large museums of the world. These photos with their interconnecting levels of perception, time, and subject matter prompt the viewer to investigate the very act of seeing and perceiving. The art historian Hans Belting discusses in his essay the complex questions that arise when facing Struth's 'Museum Photographs'.

Thomas Struth is considered one of the major figures of German photography. He combines a rigorous style with a neutral, objective vision of reality and an impressively precise technique. The first major monograph on Struth to be published in the United States, Still continues a notable tradition of books by German photographers from August Sander and Albert Renger-Patzsch to Hilla and Bernd Becher, and is a beautiful survey of Struth's body of work, including stunning close-up views of flowers, restrained urban streetscapes, intimate portraits, and frenzied museum interiors. Critic Peter Schjeldahl has written in the Village Voice: "Thomas Struth [is] one of a generation of photographers whose work is the latest strength of a German art culture that seems to have no end of aces up its sleeve . . . His urban shots apply Becheresque formulas of static, unpopulated (surely early-morning), shadowless views with a feel for the ?typical' or ?average' aspect of a subject. As if in compensation, Struth's astonishing family portraits burn with human presence." Struth began in the early 1980s to make steely black-and-white photographs of deserted city streets and decaying buildings. In recent years, his work has diversified in subject, scale, and color to embrace increasingly ambitious subjects and challenging locations. Struth has extended his urban investigation to the inhabitants and spaces of the city, from Milan to Tokyo, while his recent landscapes and portraits complete his unique vision of the alternately public and solitary conditions of being.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Kunst - Kunstgeschichte, Note: 2,0, Technische Universität Dresden, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Thomas Struths sogenannte "Museumsfotografien" stellen die Beziehung zwischen Bild und Betrachter im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert nicht nur in Frage, sondern erfinden das Thema in gewisser Hinsicht sogar neu. In dieser Arbeit soll das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen Bild und dem Betrachter untersucht werden. Dabei ist es wichtig, zunächst einen Überblick über die künstlerische Vita von Thomas Struth zu geben, da seine fotografische Richtung von seiner Ausbildung und der "Düsseldorfer Photoschule" beeinflusst wurde. Anschließend soll eine Analyse der Intensionen des Künstlers sowie der daraus resultierenden bzw. den damit beabsichtigten Wirkungen an einigen ausgewählten Werken aus dem Museumsbilderzyklus erfolgen. Die Interpretation von Fotografie liegt allein beim Betrachter. Gleichwohl stellt sich hier die Frage, ob es nicht auch Struths Anliegen ist, das Unterbewusste zu ergründen? Also die ungeschriebene soziale Regel, die uns alle in gewisser Weise dazu bringt, zu wissen, wie wir uns in einem Museum verhalten und wie wir Kunst anschauen und verstehen sollen. Danach wird zudem der − vielleicht nicht dem Haupanliegen des Künstlers entsprechende, aber durchaus offensichtliche − Paragone zwischen Fotografie und Malerei angesprochen werden. Auf die Bedeutung der modernen Fotografie für das Verhältnis zwischen Bild und Betrachter kann an dieser Stelle nur kurz eingegangen werden. Ebenfalls nur en passant kann auf die umfassende Literatur über die gesellschaftskritische Auseinandersetzung Struths im Zusammenhang der Düsseldorfer Schule verwiesen werden. In dieser Arbeit soll es hauptsächlich um die Bedeutung der Museumsfotografien für unsere Betrachtung von Kunst gehen. Dabei soll die Frage im Mittelpunkt stehen, wie Struth es erreicht, dass wir uns beim Anblick seiner Werke in einem Paradoxon aus Zeit, Raum, betrachteter Kunst und betrachtender Betrachter, verlieren.

"This major exhibition by the pioneering German photographer Thomas Struth (born 1954) presents the most comprehensive survey of his genre-defining oeuvre. Covering four decades of work and every phase of his illustrious artistic career, the exhibition focuses especially on the aspect of Struth's social interests which represent the important forces of his internationally influential artistic development. Starting with his first series Unbewusste Orte (Unconscious Places) published in 1987 through his current works that deal with the field of research and technology in the globalized world, Struth's work develops its own specific analytical nature through his choice of subject matter, the manner of its photographic realization and its modes of presentation. These aspirations are manifested in questioning the relevance of public space and transformation of cities, the cohesive factor of family solidarity, the importance of the relationship between nature and culture, and exploring the limits and possibilities of new technologies. The momentum of participation further characterizes these aspirations, as Struth's extensive pictorial inventions and strategies allow individual interpretation based on collective knowledge"--Publisher's website.

"Since the 1990s, Thomas Struth has been one of the most renowned and influential photographers of the German art scene. A brilliant conceptualist with an unerring eye for color, Struth studied painting under Gerhard Richter and photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher, a combination that decisively influenced his vision. This volume collects more than 120 representative photographs from each series in Struth's oeuvre, including: early street photographs from the 1970s and '80s ('Unconscious Places'); the "Family Portraits" series; the "Museum Photographs"; "Nature and Politics"; the jungle photographs ("New Pictures from Paradise"); and, from his latest series, images from the realm of science. Also included are previously unpublished works from the photographer's archive. The largest and most comprehensive survey of the artist's work to date, this superbly illustrated volume includes scholarly essays by curators Thomas Weski and Ulrich Wilmes, as well as photographer Jana-Maria Hartmann. An interview with the artist by Okwui Enwezor, Director of Haus der Kunst, provides valuable insight into Struth's career and ideas."
