"Photo A–Z: photographers we have featured, and those we have always been wanting to." With this in mind, the NRW Forum celebrates 15 years of spectacular exhibitions.
The NRW Forum's record of exhibitions spans from A for Araki all the way to Z for Zeitschriften (Magazines) – covering everything from Goldin, Höfer, Outerbridge, and Wall in between. Throughout the years, the venue has addressed anything from avant-garde photography magazines to individual artists who have influenced not only the history of photography, but also advertising, fashion and media.
In addition to important icons whose work has already been featured at the NRW Forum – such as Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, or Robert Mapplethorpe – this exhibition fills in the remaining gaps with works by Cindy Sherman, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Inez van Lamsweerde, as well as old masters such as Paul Outerbridge or Charles Jones who once again serve as a huge inspiration to a young generation of photographers.
Many of the images have never or rarely been on show in Germany; other prints were made especially for this exhibition, for instance Nick Knight’s flower photos and Joel Sternfeld’s iPhone photos from Dubai.
