Thomas Struth’s Paradise series confronts viewers with an almost overwhelming quantity of detail. Dense, textured undergrowth and criss-crossing plant forms disorientate, as the depth and scale of the images cannot be determined; yet it is this confusion which, Struth suggests, creates an inner calmness. “I wanted to make photographs in which everything was so complex and detailed that you could look at them forever and never see anything,” he claims, and in doing so captures a sense of harmony and peace. In search of finding a ‘paradise’, Struth left his native Germany and scoured the world for unspoiled locations. The series includes photographs taken in Australia, Asia, South America, and many more diverse settings.
