Thomas Ruff (German, b. 1958) is an internationally-renowned photographer who lives and works in Dusseldorf. Ruff studied photography from 1977 to 1985 with Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie Dusseldorf. Thomas Ruff tests the limits of the photographic medium in his series of digitally-altered pornographic images. Ruff pulls explicit images from the internet and manipulates their resolution to create works that are visually distorted. Stretched and blurred, the original image and its carnality are softened in a painterly haze so that only vague, sensual shapes remain recognizable.
