Thomas Struth

Online visiting artist

Thomas Struth is a German photographer who is best known for his Museum Photographs series, family portraits, and black and white photographs of the streets of Düsseldorf and New York taken in the 1970s. Struth lives and works in Berlin and New York. He began as a painter, before enrolling at the Kunstakademie, Düsseldorf in 1973.

Struth has developed his individual photographic practice as a penetration of the human imagination, in order to scrutinize the landscape of invention, technology, and beyond (as in his recent CERN and Animal images). Celebrated for his diverse body of work—Unconscious Places, Family Life, Museum Photographs, New Pictures from Paradise and Nature & Politics—Struth continues to advance his vocabulary with each new series, while maintaining the principles that are core to his practice.
