Artist's book.
Between 1981 and 1991 Thomas Ruff collected photographs from German newspapers and weeklies, amassing an archive of 2500 images. In 1990 and 1991 he selected 400 images from it, according to entirely subjective criteria, photographed them without captions, and had them reproduced as color prints in twice their original size.
For this book, Thomas Ruff re-photographed the templates of the Zeitungsfotos series so they could be reproduced in black-and-white on a colored background.
Awarded: “Most Beautiful Swiss Books 2014”.
Born 1958 in Zell am Harmersbach (Germany), Thomas Ruff lives and works in Dusseldorf and New York City.
