STRUTH, THOMAS (INTRODUCTION BY RICHARD SENNETT) - Unconscious Places

Title: Unconscious Places
Description: Schirmer-Mosel Productions, Munich Germany, 2012. Quarto; hardcover, with blind-stamped upper board and spine titles; 264pp., with many full-colour and monochrome illustrations. Minor wear. Dustwrapper very lightly rubbed and edgeworn (now professionally protected by superior non-adhesive polypropylene film). Near fine. Laid in: a postcard and promotional booklet concerning the book launch. Streets are the stages of the Great Theatre of the World. In his new collection, Thomas Struth (born 1954) unveils, for the first time, his perhaps most important and certainly most extensive and long-standing series, his street photographs. "An aura of stillness and repose suffused the photographs, even those made in honking, shoving of New York," is how Richard Sennett remembers his first impression of Thomas Struth's street photographs. The famous American cultural sociologist penned the essay accompanying this new volume of Struth's work, "Unconscious Places". The shots are part of a work complex that Thomas Struth embarked upon in his student days and has continued to build on for more than three decades. His first street photographs were taken in 1976; other views of architecture, squares, residential streets, and building complexes followed in Cologne, Munich, London, Brussels, Rome and Paris, as well as on trips outside Europe, to Japan, China, Peru, Korea, Shanghai, and the United States. With 228 photographs of 53 locations in 16 countries, our book "Unconscious Places" shows, for the first time, a comprehensive selection of this long-term visual project that Struth pursued in parallel with his famous family portraits, museum pictures, and natural paradises.
