"Ruhr Views" presents portraits of the Ruhr valley region in West Germany by 11 internationally renowned cross-generation photographers: Bernd and Hilla Becher, Laurenz Berges, Joachim Brohm, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Andreas Gursky, Jitka Hanzlova, Candida Hofer, Matthias Koch, Elisabeth Neudorfl, Jorg Sasse and Thomas Struth. All of these photographers had made work in the Ruhr previously, and selected their own subjects to photograph for this volume (some of which related to previous projects); all of the photography (save that of Bernd and Hilla Becher) is published here for the first time, and offers new perspectives on today's Ruhr metropolis. Sigrid Schneider's essay "Retrospectives: The Ruhr in Photographs" offers insights into the myths and character of the Ruhr, and Thomas Weski provides a detailed introduction to the participating artists and their work and describes their various working methods.
