Andreas Gursky's large architectural and landscape photographs

May 05, 2014

Andreas Gursky is one of the most prominent photographers of the past two decades. His work is large scale and deals with colossal structures and collective existence. The photographs are from a very objective and high up perspective, creating broad landscapes with an impersonal feeling. We see people working in factories and the stock exchange, a 99-cent store rife with colorful objects juxtaposed with the minimal aesthetic of a Prada store.
