Thomas Struth: an objective photographer?

German photographer Thomas Struth receives his first solo show in Britain this summer at London’s Whitechapel Gallery. Ranging from 1978 to 2010, the exhibition takes in dense jungles, gawping tourists, re-built German cities and sprawling Asian ones. FT photography critic Francis Hodgson visits the show, and asks Struth and curator Achim Borchardt-Hume about the personal choices behind these seemingly objective pictures.
