On Demand. Thomas Demand, that is.

Thomas Demand is a photographer with an interesting working process. He starts with an image of a location, and then carefully reconstructs the location in his studio using cardboard and paper. His photographs of these reconstructions have an almost painterly quality, reminiscent of the work of Gerhard Richter. Demand has a mid-career retrospective opening at the MoMA.
