The show will feature never-before shown photographs by Gursky

His newest works plus a selection of his finest photographs from previous years comprise the focus of a new Andreas Gursky exhibit in Düsseldorf at Museum Kunstpalast (September 23, 2012 – January 13, 2013).

The show will feature never-before shown photographs by Gursky, whose digitally processed photographs are known for their extreme largeness and depth, as well as the ambivalence of their perspective. A theme of his latest work series (Ocean, 2010; Bangkok, 2011) is “water,” a charged topic due to recent events in Japan and Australia.
