Published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition held at the Museum of Cycladic Arts Athens in 2009. Presents "Thomas Struth". Some of Struth's finest and most representative photographs. Is there still such a thing as art photography that is distinct from any other kind of photography in our time? If so, what is it, or could be? Struth's response is visceral and startling photographs of architectural masterworks and other iconic, man-made structures. One of Struth's most insightful critics has described his work as "like nothing one has ever seen before. The places belong to the world of Struth's benign photographic vision. They reassure even as they baffle" (Janet Malcolm). His images may be benign, but they are not easy on the eyes or instantly likeable. Malcolm ("Diana & Nikon: Essays On Photography") is right to remind us that while anyone can take beautiful photographs (if imitably so) now more than ever with the arrival of the digital camera, only an artist of Struth's visionary ambition can create images that, like all true art, are complex, original, and sublime. An absolute "must-have" title for Thomas Struth collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in gold pen-marker on the half-title page by Thomas Struth. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 30 black-and-white and color plates. Thomas Struth's "Museum Photographs" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER THOMAS STRUTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3829604440. Bookseller Inventory # 19065
