1. Thomas Ruff, Two Photographs from the Series “Sterne”, (1990-1992)

    Ruff has always had a fascination with astronomy. His attempt at photographing night sky failed due to the lack of detail captured in the pictures he had taken. Ruff’s equipment could not render the detail he wanted. As well, air and light pollution added to the difficulties of capturing the beautiful constellations. His solution was to appropriate observation shots from the website of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) based in the Andes in Chile. As far as we know, this is the first time Ruff had used “found” imagery in his work.
