Artist’s statement:
As the title suggests, this is a collection of photographs I took of U2 over a period of 22 years and that is unique in itself. The book contains all the photos of the band you'd expect to find (all the well known shots of the Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby for instance), but also a lot of out-takes, private and random photos that are previously unseen. It is such a extra-ordinary relationship between U2 and myself that I decided to write, by hand, comments throughout the book to give the reader an insight of sorts. These comments are not gossip, they are at times informative and at times lightweight nonsense but you have to make your own way through it all.”

Rineke Dijkstra is renowned for her uncanny and thoughtful portraits series of teenagers and young adults: girls and boys of various nationalities at the beach, children of Bosnian refugees, Spanish bullfighters straight out of the arena, Israeli youngsters before and after military service, and here, documented for the first time, her series of photographs taken of aspiring, young ballet dancers. Her subjects are shown standing, facing the camera, against a minimal background. Formally, the images resemble classical portraiture with their frontally posed figures isolated against minimal backgrounds. Yet, in spite of the uniformity in the photographer's works, there is a marked individuality in each of her subjects.

Publisher's info:
Thomas Struth (b. 1954) is one of the most compelling artists using photography today. Coming to prominence in his native Germany in the 1970s, Struth captured the atmospheric power of the contemporary urban landscape in his early black and white works. With an intent gaze and exacting lens, Struth expanded his range to include color portraits, bringing a unique psychological precision to the tradition of portraiture.
Perhaps Struth's best-known works are his majestic, large-scaled museum photographs depicting visitors to some of the world's great museums and buildings, including The Art Institute of Chicago, the Musée du Louvre in Paris, the Accademia in Venice, and the Pantheon in Rome. These captivating photographs not only transport us to the place depicted, they also provide a chance to reexamine our own selves looking at art.
Continuing his interest in series, Struth has recently created expansive works based on the natural world, often training his camera on a particular contemporary melding of nature with technology and architecture.
This handsomely designed and produced volume is the most comprehensive book to date on the photographs of Thomas Struth and accompanies a major retrospective exhibition organized by the Dallas Museum of Art. Engaging essays by well-known photography and art experts chronicle Struth's career and situate his work in the context of the history of photography and its rise in contemporary art
