ANDREAS GURSKY, by Peter Galassi - 2001$55.00
by Peter Galassi
Published at the occasion of the exhibition Andreas Gursky by The Museum of Modern Art, this catalog is a magnificent and awe-inspiring tribute to the peerless art of the German photographer. Always grand and imposing, Gursky's photographs present us with the impact of man on the landscapes of our planet, transformed into gigantic cityscape where even humans sometimes seem not to have their place, and make us realize the greatness and vastness of our Universe. And beside the pictures of human-built spaces, stand the images of the glory and terrifying majesty of Nature, which is captured in all its power in the photographs of glaciers, mountains, and skies. Gursky is a truly exceptional artist, as stated once again by this splendid catalog, which features, along with the superb plates, an exhibition chronology, a bibliography, and text by Peter Galassi. 196 pages. 13.5 x 12.25 inches.
