Thomas Struth


This stunning book brings together sixteen photographs taken by Thomas Struth in Israel and the Israeli-occupied West Bank in 2009, 2011 and 2014. In this book, Struth continued his practice of creating singular images, each within one of the strictly segregated subject fields he has developed through his career: street photographs, portraits, landscapes and photographs of high technology. Struth has attempted to photograph each fragment of the conflicted political and social landscape of the region, and each image carries the enduring complexity and visual distillation of human experience for which he is known. In some ways, this extraordinary body of work is a departure from the influential German photographer’s traditional practice; all exposures are related to one single geographical and political reality, as if Struth found every aspect of his photographic vision in one place, and as though Israel and the West Bank were a geographical container for the scope of the human condition. Features text by Ulrich Loock in German and English. Published by MACK (London).
