Thomas Demand is the new star in international photography. For his pictures of office desks, copy shops, or car parks, Demand creates cardboard replicas accurate to the tiniest detail. His sculptural simulations devoid of people blend a faked reality with our memory of a real one to investigate the concept of virtual reality in our multimedia age. This is his first major monograph.
