Andreas Gursky at the Hayward Gallery

Watch more with these video collections:

In 2018, Hayward Gallery reopened with the first major UK retrospective of the work of acclaimed German photographer Andreas Gursky. Known for his large-scale, often spectacular pictures that portray emblematic sites and scenes of the global economy and contemporary life, he is widely regarded as one of the most significant photographers of our time.

Go behind the scenes of the now-completed Andreas Gursky exhibition with Ralph Rugoff, Director of the Hayward Gallery in London. In this video by filmmaker Ed Prosser, Rugoff introduces Gursky’s dizzying compositions and inconceivable collections.

We’re big fans of Gursky’s work. From far away and up close, his giant images inspire new perspectives on how we live, and his photos can fascinate kids and adults alike. The gallery’s corresponding book, Andreas Gursky, is a compact get for school or home if you haven’t yet seen these wall-size images in person. You can also see his work in The Guardian.
