Candida Höfer : architecture of absence by Constance W Glenn( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last thirty years, Candida Hofer has created meticulously composed images of the interiors of public and institutional spaces - spaces marked with the richness of human activity, yet largely devoid of human presence. Whether it be a photograph of a national library or a hotel lobby, Hofer's images ask us to conduct a distanced, disengaged examination through the window she has created. Seen as a collection, her rhythmically patterned images present a universe of interiors wholly constructed by human intention, unearthing patterns of order, logic, and disruption imposed on these spaces by their now absent creators and inhabitants." "Architecture of Absence examines Hofer's unique oeuvre and the relationship of her architecture work to that of the Becher circle - noted students of the Dusseldorf Art Academy's renowned professor Bernd Becher, including Thomas Ruff, Thomas Struth, Andreas Gursky, and Axel Hutte."--Jacket

Candida Höfer : a monograph by Candida Höfer( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and German and held by 145 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

Candida Höfer : libraries by Candida Höfer( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 112 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 : Louvre by Candida Höfer( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in 4 languages and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Candida Hofer's photographs, devoid of all human presence, are silent at first sight. In a masterly, almost magical way, they bear witness to the strength of architecture and the magnificence of painted or sculpted decoration, and despite (or perhaps because of) the absence of the public, they capture the basic purpose of cultural institutions, such as museums, open houses and libraries, which have been her favourite theme for some ten years. Here Hofer turns her attention to the vast universe of the Louvre. This series of photographs allows her to examine one of the key elements in the history of the Louvre and a specific feature of museum architecture: the gallery. The changing curves of the vaulted ceilings become the recurrent motif, the hallmark of these images. They bore deep into our vision, as if our gaze could be swallowed up inside an infinitely long tunnel." "Through Hofer's work, the Louvre regains its magical power as a place inhabited by history and art; and by this rigorous symmetry, the gaze of the public is directed straight to the heart of the photographic image, revealing a new imaginative space."--BOOK JACKET
