Book Description

15 Jan 2011
Andreas Gursky (* 1955 in Leipzig) has ranked for many years among the world s leading photographic artists. Now, for the first time ever, an attempt is being made to unfurl the artist s oeuvre in all its encyclopedic glory. Gursky has chosen over 150 works from his fund of photographs, reaching back in time to his student days at the Folkwang Hochschule Essen, followed by the period in which he studied in the class run by Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Beginning with the earliest exposures, such as the Desk Attendants and other unpublished photographs, the publication describes an enormous trajectory that takes us to his most recent works, which were conceived specially for the monograph. Every single exposure in Gursky s encyclopedic morphology is a vital piece in the puzzle, which over some 28 years has resulted in a sweeping view of the global world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good survey but ... 31 Jan 2012

The trouble with all the Gursky books is the size of the reproductions. In life these are huge pieces full of detail, looking at them in a book in no way replicates the experience of standing in front of the original. The museum of modern art book n tackles the problem by reproducing segments at life size, but is now quite out of date. This survey is more complete but the pictures are much smaller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but format issues 9 Aug 2012
By central squared - Published on Amazon.com
This book covers Gursky very well. The hardbound cover is linen and very nice. The printing quality is also very good. But my main issue is that many of the images span two pages and since the book is relatively thick, you can't really see the entire image, at least to the fullest effect. It's a little annoying and has me searching out another book to complement. Also, the dimensions could be larger to better see the detail in Gursky's work. Despite the issues, it's still a book to own, just because of how broad it is.

By Felipe Abreu - Published on Amazon.com
This book is really well done. The paper is awesome and the cover, is really beautiful and has a good touch. The work of Andreas Gursky is really complex and vast. This retrospective shows a well done extract of 20 years of photographic work
