Andreas Gursky: Redefining Photography

‘For the last four decades, Andreas Gursky has been one of the most important artists and photographers in the world. He is constantly questioning what the boundaries of photography are’.

Director of Hayward Gallery, Ralph Rugoff, introduces the first major UK retrospective of Gursky’s work, which is also the first exhibition to take place in the gallery following our two-year refurbishment.

In this video Ralph Rugoff walks you through the exhibition, discussing Gursky’s unique approach to image-making and his large-scale spectacular works which often seem transcend the boundaries between painting and photography.

Gursky is perhaps best known as someone who has been an audacious chronicler of the global economy, and documented the epic sights that global capitalism has produced
