Thomas Ruff

photograms and ma.r.s.

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of two bodies of works by Thomas Ruff, including the world premiere of the series photograms. On view in the gallery's 525 and 533 West 19th Street spaces in New York, this will be the photographer's seventh solo show since he joined David Zwirner in 2000.

Working in distinct series since the late 1970s, Ruff has approached different genres of photography, including portraiture, architecture, astronomy, the nude, surveillance imagery, and reportage. Using a wide range of technological approaches, and often pushing the limits of photographic representation in the process, he has reinvented many historical conventions and expectations of the medium. The photograms and ma.r.s. works presented in this exhibition continue his interest in visual verisimilitude, with each series exploring the mutability and material presence of the photographic image.
