- "Andreas Gursky' s large color photographs vividly encapsulate our world of high-tech industry, global markets, easy travel, and slick commerce. Gursky has tracked the contemporary zeitgeist from his native Germany to such far-flung places as Hong Kong, Brasilia, Cairo, New York, Shanghai, Stockholm, Tokyo, Paris, Singapore, and Los Angeles. His subjects include international stock exchanges, vast hotels and apartment buildings, sporting championships and parliaments, and midnight raves attended by casts of thousands." "This large-format book is published to accompany the first American retrospective of Gursky's work, at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in the spring of 2001. Its full-page plates and generous details survey the artist's career from 1984 to the present. Peter Galassi's richly illustrated essay provides the first in-depth study of the artistic contexts, working methods, and evolution of Gursky's photography. The book concludes with a detailed Exhibition Chronology and Bibliography." --Book Jacket.
