Photographs can seem convincingly real or strangely artificial. The work of German photographer Thomas Demand achieves a disquieting balance between the two. Demand begins with a preexisting image, usually culled from the media, which he translates into a life-size model made out of colored paper and cardboard. His handcrafted facsimiles of architectural spaces and natural environments are built in the image of other images. Thus, his photographs are triply removed form the scenes or objects they purport to depict. This comprehensive publication presents all of Demand's major works from 1993 to the present.
