“Like many photographers, Struth watches and waits. But he’s not interested in catching something, or in catching someone out. Responding to an increasing interest in photographing people, some he knows and others he does not, Struth has taken extreme care to resist the temptations of voyeurism.” James Lingwood Parkett No. 50/51, 1997
