ABOUT THE WORK:

Thomas Ruff created his groundbreaking Substratum (or 'Substrat') series in 2003. This series consists of camera-less photographs made without negatives. Ruff appropriated these images from Japanese anime or Manga from the internet, which often feature intense neon colors. By blurring and superimposing the images, he makes the originals unidentifiable, digitally layering more and more colour until they lose, in his eyes, their quality as 'photographs'. Ruff's Substratum series pushes the boundaries of photography through a use of abstraction, a result of the summation of visual information. This print comes from an edition of 300 made in 2019.
