Ruff Guide to Mars

A journey with Thomas Ruff

This time, the experience of the photographer completely coincides with the subject matter he holds most dear. Thomas Ruff has come home to Mars, as it were, with his most recent series of jumbo-sized photographs of this fourth planet from the sun. Mixing pure fact with purer fiction, he obtains the digital images NASA 's reconnaissance orbiter sends back to base and proceeds to colour them precisely the way he wishes for them to appear.
