happy weekend.


Candida Höfer Galleria degli Antichi Sabbioneta I 2010, Light Jet print, 180 x 221 cm


Candida Höfer Teatro Scientifico Bibiena Mantova I 2010, Light Jet print, 180 x 225 cm


Candida Höfer Teatro Olimpico Vicenza II 2010, Light Jet print, 180 x 235 cm

Höfer produces large-format photographs of interiors of palaces, opera houses and theatres, without digital enhancement or alteration, working only with the existing light source. The result is a ‘rare combination of intimacy and scale, in which intricate architectural detail is captured without sacrificing the sense of space and civilised order’. Just sublime.

A Return to Italy, Ben Brown Fine Art, London, until 12th April. More, here
