Publisher's Description. Andreas Gursky's photographs are merciless in their vertiginous will to make every last tube of toothpaste count, to compel every constituent into legibility.

Although Andreas Gursky is enchanted with his grand subjects, he also is careful in regards to reflecting the dispassionate attitude that permeates his work.
I had the disorienting sensation that something was happening-happening to me, I suppose, although it felt more generalized than that. Gursky's huge, panoramic colour prints-some of them up to six feet high by ten feet long-had the presence, the formal power, and in several cases the majestic aura of nineteenth-century landscape paintings, without losing any of their meticulously detailed immediacy as photographs.
