About

Gerhard Richter | Photographs is dedicated to the artist’s photographic work. While Richter’s practice is intricately connected to the medium of photography, pure photographs have seldom been part of his work. Several unique images and rare photographic editions brought together, encompassing early self-portraits, portrait series, landscapes, experimental abstractions, and reproductions of Richter’s own paintings. Schwarz explains, “The photographs presented are the exception rather than the rule. They often reside in the proximity of another medium that Richter chose to produce images.”

Spanning from 1965 to 2021, Gerhard Richter | Photographs explores how the artist has continued to navigate the pictorial potential of a photograph over the decades of his practice.

Gerhard Richter | Photographs

Spanning from 1965 to 2021, Gerhard Richter | Photographs explores how the artist has continued to navigate the pictorial potential of a photograph over the decades of his work.

While Richter’s body of work includes relatively few pure photographs—as Dieter Schwarz points out, “The photographs presented […] are the exception rather than the rule”—, his photographic strategies are just as inventive and diverse as his work in general. Simultaneously, his creations in other media often draw heavily from the influence of photography. In essence, photographs serve as the origin and core of many of Richter’s works.

Encompassing early self-portraits, portrait series, landscapes, experimental abstractions, and reproductions of Richter’s own paintings, the catalogue includes a new text by Schwarz and is published on the occasion of Gerhard Richter | Photographs, Jan 18th – Feb 17th, 2024, Sies + Höke, Düsseldorf.
