Artist photographers of today have an immense new repertoire of potential forms of design and expression at their fingertips. XL Photography, with its close to 200 large-format works by 14 photographers, ranging from the ironic picture stories by Anna and Bernhard Blume to the landscape images by Axel Hütte, interior photographs by Candida Höfer and the provocating erotic stagings by Nobuyoshi Araki, for the first time presents the photograph collection of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange assembled by Jean-Christophe Ammann, the Director of the Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt. The originals may be seen at the Neue Börse building from November 2000. Artists who have already made a name for themselves such as Andreas Gursky, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Thomas Ruff, Beat Streuli or Thomas Struth are featured next to younger talents still awaiting discovery. More than a simple collection catalog, the lavishly designed and produced book presents the essential positions of photographic art in the last ten years. The photographers: Nobuyoshi Araki, Anna and Bernhard Blume, Baltasar Burkhard, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Günter Förg, Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Axel Hütte, Martin Liebscher, Inge Rambow, Thomas Ruff, Jörg Sasse, Beat Streuli, Thomas Struth.
