The Düsseldorf School is renowned around the world, and is today synonymous with high artistic standards and a highly diverse and new approach to the medium of photography. There has been no other art movement since the Bauhaus to possess such a worldwide appeal.
This volume traces its ascendancy from the mid-1970s, when husband and wife team Bernd and Hilla Becher gave art photography an institutional roof. Three generations of internationally acclaimed artists emerging from it: Laurenz Berges, Elger Esser, Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Axel Hütte, Simone Nieweg, Thomas Ruff, Jörg Sasse, Thomas Struth, Petra Wunderlich.
Filled with superb reproductions of the artists' best-known pictures, this impeccably bound and printed book offers the first encyclopaedic overview of this important movement.
