Publisher's Description
Thomas Demand is a young German photographer (b. 1964) who is deconstructing the nature of photography itself. In his photographs of still, immaculate handmade (by himself) paper recreations of actual spaces (an entrance to an aeroplane, an escalator), demand knowingly uses the traditional role of photography as a faithful transcriber of the world to throw his subjects artificially into doubt. in so doing, he eloquently questions - and arguably provided solutions to - reality, originality, and the fundamental role of the artist.
