In Thomas Struth: Strangers and Friends, German photographer Thomas Struth explores the social space and mental state of the modern metropolis. From empty streets to urban crowds, from intimate family portraits to frenzied museum interiors, Struth's photographs portray the relationships, conscious and unconscious, through which we build and abandon our identities in a world of transitory physical. A former student of artist Gerhard Richter and of photographers Hilla and Bernd Becher at the Dusseldorf Academy, Struth began in the early 1980s to make steely black and white photographs of deserted city streets and decaying buildings in a restrained and rigorous style that seemed to underscore his debt to his teachers. Since then, he has continued to depict the empty spaces of the contemporary city in photographs that have an eerie, almost archaeological sense of detachment. But in recent years, his work has diversified in subject, scale, and color to embrace increasingly ambitious subjects and challenging locations. Struth has extended his urban investigation to the inhabitants of the city and the places they live in, from Naples to Tokyo, Chicago to Berlin. This book moves beyond the mute facades of buildings to the expressive architecture of friends', families' and couples' lives. It is not only the anonymous and generic space between buildings, but the psychological and subjective space between people, close and distant, which Struth's looking describes. Thomas Struth: Strangers and Friends is the most complete presentation of the photographer's work to date. It continues a notable tradition of books by German photographers from August Sander and Albert Renger-Patzsch to Hilla and BerndBecher. This is Struth's third book, following Unconscious Places (1987) and Museum Photographs (1993). It is also his first book to be published in the United States.

The latest title of the LiberArs series is dedicated to German artist Thomas Struth (Geldern, 1954), regarded as one of the most prominent contemporary artists, who with the title walking makes us participants of a powerful reflection on architecture and its evocative power. Walking through the streets of different places and countries, Struth fixes his gaze on how architectural spaces inform us about the stances taken by their inhabitants to populate them. Decisions that create the structure and soul of cities. Images that represent a particular way of looking at what is around us. The photographs that are comprised by this project were taken in Berlin, Bethlehem (New Hampshire), Corrubedo, Düsseldorf, Munich, New York, Potsdam and Zürich.

"Since the 1990s, Thomas Struth has been one of the most renowned and influential photographers of the German art scene. A brilliant conceptualist with an unerring eye for color, Struth studied painting under Gerhard Richter and photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher, a combination that decisively influenced his vision. This volume collects more than 120 representative photographs from each series in Struth's oeuvre, including: early street photographs from the 1970s and '80s ('Unconscious Places'); the "Family Portraits" series; the "Museum Photographs"; "Nature and Politics"; the jungle photographs ("New Pictures from Paradise"); and, from his latest series, images from the realm of science. Also included are previously unpublished works from the photographer's archive. The largest and most comprehensive survey of the artist's work to date, this superbly illustrated volume includes scholarly essays by curators Thomas Weski and Ulrich Wilmes, as well as photographer Jana-Maria Hartmann. An interview with the artist by Okwui Enwezor, Director of Haus der Kunst, provides valuable insight into Struth's career and ideas."]c--publisher's description, page 2 of jacket.
