Presentation

Thomas Ruff, born 10.02.1958 in Zell am Hammersbach, is a German photographer. He lives and works in Dusseldorf. Ruff studied photography from 1977 to 1985 with Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf (Düsseldorf Art Academy). In 1982, he spent six months at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. In 1993, he was a scholar at Villa Massimo in Rome.

Through the recovery of preexisting images or the use of digital techniques, Thomas Ruff reveals the current gap between the subject and its image, and its impossible claim to identification and authenticity. A pioneer of the large format, Thomas Ruff is undoubtedly one of the greatest photographers working today.
