About the author (1991)

Richard Serra was born in San Francisco in 1939. While in college, he supported himself by working in steel mills. His work, which stems from minimalist beginnings in the 60s and has been exhibited and permanently installed around the world, is famous for a physicality compounded by breathtaking size and weight. Serra lives in New York and Nova Scotia.

Dirk Reinartz (1947-2004) studied photography with Otto Steinert at the Folkwang School in Essen before launching his career in 1971 as the youngest photographic reporter at "Stern" magazine. In 1977 he joined the photographers' collective VISUM. After his departure from VISUM in 1982 he worked independently, specializing in recent and controversial historical themes, such as German concentration camps. He also made several now-iconic portraits of artists, and his work with Richard Serra, whose worldwide sculptural projects he documented, resulted in several important books on the artist's work. Until his death in 2004, Reinartz taught photography at the Muthesius University in Kiel.
