Candida Höfer : libraries by Candida Hfer( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nobody photographs libraries, those splendid and intimate cathedrals of knowledge, as beautifully as Candida Hofer. Her photographs are sober and restrained in feel- the atmosphere is disturbed by neither visitors nor users, especially as she forgoes any staging of the locations. The emptiness is imbued with substance by a subtle attention to colour, and the prevailing silence instilled with a metaphysical quality that gives voice to the objects, over and above the eloquence of the furnishings or the pathos of the architecture." "This volume contains Hofer's famously ascetic images of the British Library in London, the Escorial in Spain, the Whitney Museum and the Pierpont Morgan Library in New York, the Bibliotheque nationale de France in Paris, the Villa Medici in Rome and the Hamburg University Library, among others. Umberto Eco introduces the collection with a witty reflection on the role of libraries in all our lives."--Jacket
Candida Höfer : a monograph by Candida Hfer( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Candida Hofer's relationship to architecture is fully in keeping with the New Objectivity tradition. Her photographs of public spaces are almost sober and ascetic in feel - the specific atmosphere is disturbed by neither visitors nor users, especially as she forgoes any spectacular staging of the locations. The emptiness is imbued with substance by a subtle attention to color, and the prevailing silence thus instilled with a metaphysical quality that gives voice to the objects - over and above the eloquence of the furnishings or the pathos of the architecture
