Thomas Struth - Nature and Politics
Exhibition, High Museum of Art, Atlanta, USA.
Thomas Struth is celebrated for his innovations with large-scale colour photography, which entail cityscapes, architecture, portraits, landscapes, museum pictures, and images of technology systems. The exhibition combines various strands of Struth’s work, with particular focus on technology and the manufactured landscape as overarching subjects. The photographs are global in nature, drawn from the artist’s travels in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and America over the past 10 years.
They include two photographs made in Atlanta in 2013 – a monumental print from the High’s permanent collection, captured in the Georgia Aquarium, and a photograph of a robotics workroom at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
