Check out the work of Candida Hofer. She was a student of the famous Bernd and Hilla Becher. Hofer was the instructor of artists such as Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff and Thomas Struth at the Hochschule fur Gestaltung.
Her work explores the concept of space and purpose. She will not include people in her works, and is quoted saying, ““…it became apparent to me that what people do in these spaces – and what these spaces do to them – is clearer when no one is present, just as an absent guest is often the subject of a conversation.”
Hofer’s work is internationally recognized and is included in the collections of the Louvre, the Kuntsmuseum Lucerne, MoMa and the Guggenheim Museum to name a few.
She is represented by Sean Kelly
