Since the late 1970s, Thomas Ruff has been exploring the internal rules and structures of the photographic medium through his varied series. He is interested not only in the diverse genres of photography, but also in different photographic techniques.
For his latest series “press++” Thomas Ruff uses press photographs from the 1930s to the 1970s, which he acquired from American and Japanese newspaper archives. The selected images span the entire spectrum of the news world – from politics to society, from science to technology, and from arts and culture to fashion.
