Richard Ross

Museology (New Images Book)
by Marcia Tucker
Publisher's Description
"Richard Ross' images explore the relationship between museum objects and their display. He refocuses the illusion of the diorama in natural-history museums. He wanders into corners and storerooms, looking for the sense of wonder that accompanied objects before they became sanitized and sterile. Finally he isolates the display of art history paintings--equating their function with that of other decorative objects that surround them. His images collectively question the ethos of collection and display, and the sanctification of culture."--the publisher.
