Andreas Gursky biography

Andreas Gursky first studied photography in Essen and then in Düsseldorf under Bernd Becher, and was his master pupil from 1985 to 1987. Although he began working with small-scale works showing landscapes or interiors, in the 1990s the artist started photographing his subjects from different perspectives with a large-format camera and combining the individual images to a new whole through the use of computer editing, a process never used by any of his colleagues of the Becher School. Gursky creates gigantic images of duplicated ornamental structures and homogenous surfaces - such as the patterns created by anonymous crowds of people. He compares this process to the work of a painter. Gursky has been a professor of the Liberal Arts at the Academy in Düsseldorf since 2010. His large-format photographs have recently achieved record prices on the international auction market.
