To shoot his initial photogaph, Andreas Gursky tends to use a mobile or a compact camera. For instance when standing on a boat pier in Bangkok, and noticing the surreal reflections on the surface of a local river. Now, the enormous – processed and magnified – version of this image is displayed on the walls of the Kunstpalast Museum in Düsseldorf. The exhibition, which is running from 23rd September 2012 to 13th September 2013, encompasses not just the Bangkok pictures, but also some of Gursky's best known works, such as his view of the river Rhein. A total of sixty images by the internationally renowned artist will be on display.

A student of Bernd Becher at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, Andreas Gursky's artistic work began with small format photography. However, by the end of the 1980s he had already gone over to large formats. In the Nineties, Gursky moved to digital processing – making it his characteristic medium of choice.
