Ruhr Views

New German Photography

Text by Thomas Weski.

Ruhr Views presents portraits of the Ruhr valley region in West Germany by 11 internationally renowned cross-generation photographers: Bernd and Hilla Becher, Laurenz Berges, Joachim Brohm, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Andreas Gursky, Jitka Hanzlová, Candida Höfer, Matthias Koch, Elisabeth Neudörfl, Jörg Sasse and Thomas Struth. All of these photographers had made work in the Ruhr previously, and selected their own subjects to photograph for this volume (some of which related to previous projects); all of the photography (save that of Bernd and Hilla Becher) is published here for the first time, and offers new perspectives on today's Ruhr metropolis. Sigrid Schneider's essay "Retrospectives: The Ruhr in Photographs" offers insights into the myths and character of the Ruhr, and Thomas Weski provides a detailed introduction to the participating artists and their work and describes their various working methods.

FROM THE BOOK
"The Ruhr area served as an experimental laboratory for all photographic genres, visual strategies, fashions, and individual styles… Throughout all phases of development, the fundamental and constant message of the visual history of the Ruhr area can be summed up in two terms: modernity and change. The way images were used in the Ruhr has always, even more than in other places, been connected to questions of identity and image."

Sigrid Schneider, excerpted fromRetrospective: The Ruhr in photographs in Ruhr Views.
