Between 1981 and 1991, Thomas Ruff collected photographs from German newspapers and weeklies, amassing an archive of 2500 images. In 1990 and 1991, he selected 400 images from it, according to entirely subjective criteria, photographed them without captions, and had them reproduced as colour prints at twice their original size. For this book, Ruff re-photographed the templates of the 'Zeitungsfotos' series so they could be reproduced in black-and-white on a coloured background. Thanks to Bookhorse (Zurich).
