Item description for Thomas Ruff: M.D.P.N. (Italian Edition) by Thomas Ruff, Luigi Cosenza & Fabrizio Tramontano...

Description: Shortly after graduating in Bridge and Road Engineering in 1929 and being appointed to the rank of reserve lieutenant, I took a look around my city. There were no patterns to follow--only examples to imitate. The grand extravagant projects were the monopoly of the regime of arrogance and favoritism. A modern fish market was needed to replace the grubby pietra del pesce on Via Marina. I studied the problem on the spot and visited various other fish markets in Pozzuoli, Milan, Venice, Marseilles, OstEnd, Hamburg. This is how Luigi Cosenza (Naples, 1905-1984) describes the genesis of his first project, the Mercato del pesce di Napoli (Fish Market of Naples), built in 1929 and considered the manifesto of the citys rational architecture. This book documents the M.D.P.N. building in equally rational and elegant images from Germanys renowned Thomas Ruff, beginning with photographs taken in the dazzling light of an early afternoon in September 2002.

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! "Thomas Ruff was born in 1958 in the small town of Zell am Harmersbach in the Black Forest of Germany, the fourth of six children and the son of a ceramist. In the early 70s he became interested in astronomy and then photography, acquiring first a small telescope and later his first camera. Introduced to minimal and conceptual art while a student at the Dusseldorf Art Academy, he was shocked to realize that the photographs he had been taking were only imitative and clichE. Soon after he was accepted into Bernd Becher's class, along with fellow students Candida H fer, Axel H tte and Thomas Struth. The Interiors series was begun in this academic context, the Portraits series a few years later. Ruff's first solo show took place at a Munich gallery in 1981. Within less than a decade, he was being included in international exhibitions such as the Aperto in Venice. One decade after that he was appointed professor at the Dusseldorf Art Academy and was the subject of a large-scale retrospective that toured Germany, Ireland, Norway, Italy, England and Portugal."
