Thomas Ruff – Nudes

Posted by Fabio 12 March 2012

In 2003 photographer Thomas Ruff published a photographic collection of “Nudes” with a text by the French author Michel Houellebecq. Ruff’s images here are based on Internet pornography, which was digitally processed and obscured without any camera or traditional photographic device. In 2009, the Aperture Foundation in New York published jpegs, a large-scale book dedicated exclusively to his monumental series of pixilated enlargements of internet-culled images, all compressed using the standard JPEG format.
