A class of their own
The Lieven Gevaert Series, published by Leuven University Press, is a peer reviewed series of scholarly books on the presence of photography within modern culture and, in particular, the visual arts.
Leuven University Press asked us to update the series with a contemporary design that appeals to a wider audience.
The second volume in the redesigned series is A Class of Their Own: the Düsseldorf School of Photography by Maren Polte.
The ‘Düsseldorf School’ is regarded as one of the most successful and influential strains of modern photography. The name refers predominantly to the group of pioneer students of the late Bernd Becher, including Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Axel Hütte, Thomas Ruff, and Thomas Struth. What exactly connects and distinguishes these artists aesthetically is explored in this pioneering study by Maren Polte.
