L.M.V.D.R. in Thomas Ruff Retrospective
The Thomas Ruff L.M.V.D.R. Series of Photographs is named after the initials of Mies Van der Rohe, the legendary 20th Century Architect.
Having previously photographed architectural subjects, Thomas Ruff was faced with the challenge of discovering a new way to capture these all-too-familiar and heavily documented monuments in a way that would be identifiably unique and memorable.
In the L.M.V.D.R. Series, Thomas Ruff has fused traditional elements with technological innovation of digital manipulation to create an iconic body of Work.
