Geographical references are an inherent part of Candida Höfer’s extensive œuvre. For more than 40 years, the artist has photographed the interiors of buildings, most accessible to the public, at times private ones as well, that are readily identifiable. Among them are museums, libraries, foyers, concert halls, bank archives, stages, and train station waiting rooms. Höfer’s interest is not in mere documentation; what drives her work is the differentiation of complex image subjects, the issue of light, and how spaces and architecture influence people.
