Thomas Ruff‘s work is currently being exhibited at the David Zwirner Gallery in New York; the show presents two productions by Ruff, including the world premiere of the series “photograms”. Working in distinct series since the late 1970s, Ruff has approached different genres of photography, including portraiture, architecture, astronomy, the nude, surveillance imagery, and reportage. This is Ruff’s seventh solo show since his joining David Zwirner in 2000.
Photographs of dancers in motion stand in a crowded field, but these shots by Brian Kuhlmann really grabbed our attention. Initially, Brian was inspired by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010.

But she maintained her wrongness with such adamantine strength that I eventually conceded the point and even bowed slightly to emphasize my acknowledgment. “No,” she said. “Bow lower!” Smiling agreeably, I bent forward a bit farther. “No, no,” she trilled. “Much lower!” By this time, a little group of interested bystanders was gathering. I again bent forward, this time much more self-consciously. Stepping around behind me, she unmasked her batteries and smote me on the rear with the parliamentary order paper that she had been rolling into a cylinder behind her back.
