Description "Ruhr Views" unites 11 internationally renowned photographers from different generations, presenting their views of one theme: the Ruhr. The artists selected their own subjects to photograph, all of them knowing and having worked in the area, with some of the pieces tying in to earlier projects. Apart from the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher, all of the photography was created especially for the exhibition and book and is published here for the first time. Thomas Weski provides a detailed introduction to the participating artists and their work and describes their highly varied documentary working methods, which are exemplary of new photographic perspectives of the reality of todays Ruhr.
