Thomas Demand takes photographs, but photography is not his medium. The camera is not what has made him famous. His medium is, instead, the lifesize model, a scene built of cardboard, glue and paper that he then photographs as if it were real. Demand is to model-making what Cindy Sherman is to make-up: both construct illusions authenticated, as it were, by documentary photographs. But where Sherman makes herself up, Thomas Demand remakes the world – and so superbly that, for a moment, it seems you’re looking at life. – Laura Cumming, The Guardian, 11 June 2006
