THOMAS STRUTH - FAMILY LIFE / FAMILIENLEBEN
Transposed onto a modern medium and set in our present world, Struths large-size family portraits exhibit the undeniable representative character innate to this traditional genre. Transgressing cultural boundaries, the need to present oneself as an individual within a hierarchical order is manifest even in the ostensibly most relaxed of groupings.
Schirmer/Mosel. With an essay by Eric Konigsberg and texts by Gabriele Conrath-Scholl and Thomas Struth. 92 pages, 30 duotone and colour plates. Size: 27 x 32 cm, softcover with flaps. English/German edition.
