Ralph Goertz presents: Thomas Ruff & Joel Meyerowitz

In addition to Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Candida Höfer and Axel Hütte, the Düsseldorf photographer Thomas Ruff is one of Germany’s most internationally acclaimed photographers. The student of Becher became famous in the late 1980s with his large-format portraits. With series such as Jpegs, Nudes or m. a. r. s., Thomas Ruff examines the concept of the image anew time and again, thereby analytically questioning the medium of photography. Over the course of two years, Ralph Goertz was allowed to accompany the artist in his studio, while photographing, editing pictures and hanging his exhibition in Münster, and he gave us a deep insight into his way of thinking and working.

Joel Meyerowitz is one of the pioneers of street photography and, along with Stephen Shore and William Eggleston, is considered the most important representative of American New Color Photography. For three years we were allowed to accompany the photographer in New York, at Cape Cod, in Italy and France.
