Thomas Ruff (b. 1958) is one of the leading photographers in contemporary Germany. This is his first retrospective in Japan. Ruff attracted attention as a pioneer in large color photography in the late 1980s. In addition to the images he shot himself, he has used diverse materials, ranging from digital images distributed in the Internet to the old photographs that he collects, in his exploration into new possibilities of photographic expression. This show offers a full view of his unique photography world.
