Struth has photographed visitors in some of the best known museums in Europe and America. He is fascinated by the culture of museum visiting and by the ways in which visitors and the museum respond to and affect each other. Key elements in Struth’s ‘Museum Pictures’ are light, space and architecture, both in galleries themselves and in the pictures they display. He is especially interested in how spectators’ movements affect these formal aspects through pose, grouping and gesture.
