Meet the Author

Andreas Gursky was born in 1955 in Leipzig, East Germany, and studied at the prestigious Kunstakademie, Dusseldorf. His first solo gallery show was held at Galerie Johnen & Schottle, Cologne, in 1988. A solo museum exhibition followed the next year, at the Museum Haus Lange, Krefeld. By this time, Gursky was increasing the scale of his photographs, and by the 90s was using the largest photographic paper available; by 2000 he was combining sheets to make images larger still. In the early 1990s Gursky began to use digital technology for retouching and altering negatives, and more recently he has produced work entirely fabricated by computer. Gursky has had recent solo exhibitions at Matthew Marks Gallery, New York, and White Cube, London. A major mid-career retrospective traveled the world in 2001, with U.S. stops at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
