Andreas Gursky: Works 80-08

Edited and text by Martin Hentschel.

Featured image, <i>Rimini</i>, 2003, is reproduced from <a href="9783775730228.html">Andreas Gursky: Works 80-08</a>.Andreas Gursky (born 1955) has ranked for many years among the world’s leading photographic artists. First published in 2008 and quickly going out of print, Works 80–08 unfurls the artist’s oeuvre in all its encyclopedic glory. Gursky selected over 150 images from his archive of photographs especially for this publication, reaching back in time to his student days at the Folkwang Hochschule Essen, and then to his formative studies with Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Beginning with the earliest exposures, such as the “Desk Attendants” and other unpublished photographs, the publication follows his development through to the middle-eastern and Asian works of 2007/2008. Every single exposure in Gursky’s encyclopedic morphology is a vital piece in the puzzle, which over some 28 years has expanded into one of the most breathtaking and vertiginous visions of our times.

FROM THE BOOK
"From the beginning, Andreas Gursky has demonstrated that he has a keen eye for the ways in which people behave and for their longings beyond their working and everyday lives. He has also revealed a special ability to imbue lifeworlds with personal emotional states and an eye that aims beyond the topographical aspects to arrive at the whole. In this way, he comes up with extremely telling metaphors for our leisure society. While initially his photographs were largely taken in his immediate surroundings, they were soon to extend to broader spheres and finally to the global horizon. Gursky's photographs from the nineteen-eighties of large corporations and stock exchanges already point to this ultimate horizon and as a result have the status of social paradigms. At the same time, he has also directed his attention to the phenomenon of recurring morphological structures found in highly diverse areas."

Martin Hentschel, excerpted from the foreword to Andreas Gursky: Works 80-08.
