    Ruff is one of the leaders of a new generation of Germans. In particular, he explores the need for analogical illusion and desire of identification that makes us look for a demonstration of an event, of identity or of true exis­tence in a photograph. His photographs refer to objects from the outside world, sometimes spectacularly, but they also confront us with the necessi­ty to wonder about where we fit in compared with them (physically and men­tally), in the sense of what we are looking for in them or what we project onto them.
