Catalogue Note

"I am very fascinated with complex structures and depth of vision and detail. The Jungle Pictures have no immediate history of reference, so you must surrender your usual faculties and analytical tools and surrender to just looking. There is nothing to think about too much, so the act of looking becomes more meditative" (Thomas Struth cited in: Sean O’Hagan, ‘Thomas Struth’s photography’, The Guardian, 3 July 2011, online).
