Of his creative process, Struth has stated “when I am taking a photograph, I am conscious that I am constructing images rather than taking snapshots” - a concept exhibited in his most notable work, the Museum Photographs, an intimate and candid series that captured museum visitors as they admired works of art.
« For me, making a photograph is mostly an intellectual process of understanding people or cities and their historical
and phenomenological connections. »
Struth studied under Bernd and Hilla Bechr and the methodology he has used throughout his career was inspired by their documentarian approach, he also studied under Gerard Richter who encouraged his interests in painterly images. (Artist website
