The Book

Photography by Thomas Fuesser Book launch at ART Basel Hong Kong 2013, Rizzoli Bookstore 2013 New York, MoCA Shanghai 2013. Download the full Press Release. Pre-Order from In the best tradition of the photographic genre in which a photographer observes an artist at work, – we can think of Brassai’s Picasso, Henri Cartier-Bresson’s Matisse, and most recently David Dawson’s Lucian Freud -, Thomas Fuesser, over the last twenty years has been photographing artists such as Ding Yi, Zhang Peili, Feng Mengbo, Wu Shanzhuan, Ai Weiwei, Zhou Tiehai, Zeng Fanzhi, and others. He had met these artists when they were still unknown and poor. Now this album “SHORT-CUTS” made with pictures taken in 2010 and 2011 becomes an exceptional occasion for readers and art lovers to get an intimate look into the interior of the sanctuary of these artists, a fascinating moment to watch them at work, rest and play.
