In September 2008, Thomas Struth exhibited new works from his cycle of photographs entitled "Family Life". This internationally renowned artist has been working with the Rüdiger Schöttle Gallery since 1980.
Struth has been taking photographs of families in the widest diversity of countries and cultural environments continuously since 1985, including Germany, Italy, England, America, Peru, Japan and China. His photographs are taken mostly in circles of people to whom he closely relates, either privately or professionally. A whole multitude of negatives are exposed in one sitting and a selection is then made later together with the family. Only a few photographs are finally enlarged.
