At the heart of Thomas Ruff’s complex oeuvre is a pioneering conceptual expansion of what constitutes photography. Ruff’s prodigious output varies widely, from analogue portraits to manipulated images appropriated from the internet, digitally-altered archival images and digital photograms. Works by the Dusseldorf-based artist consistently explore how historical and media-driven changes in photography affect our understanding of the relationship between image and reality.
