Monumental C-print photograph "Teatro alla Scala Milano V" by Candida Hofer, Germany 2005 (signed and numbered on back, “Teatro all Scala Milano V 2005 5/6 Candida Hofer”)
In large-format color photography, Candida Höfer captures the beauty and wistful nostalgia of empty public and institutional spaces. Höfer meticulously composes her shots, positioning herself symmetrically either in the center of rooms or along a diagonal that best reveals the space’s internal architecture. She prefers places that contain a sense of history such as libraries, opera houses, museums, and zoos. She is a member of the Dusseldorf School and former student of Bernd and Hilla Becher, Höfer.
