…Such an atypical, joyful treat. "Departures, Summer 2001"
Struth’s photographs initiate a new range of observations and questions…the range of his imagery seems without boundaries...--Benjamin Buchloh
Struth has emerged as one of the most compelling voices in contemporary photography's critique of the subject and socio-economic order by creating images that are at once visually arresting and subtley political. This new monograph presents another facet of his oeuvre, a series of flower studies for a unique project: Struth was commissioned to decorate a hospital in Switzerland. To connect patients with the outside world, Struth photographed the surrounding landscape of vineyards, country lanes and gardens. Struth will be the subject of a major retrospective opening May 2002 at the Dallas Museum of Art and traveling to Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago
