man and building – thomas struth & candida hofer

13 Jul

 

eager to get a good look at german photographer’s thomas struth work at the whitechapel gallery, which hints as the relations between man and its environment.

magnificent settings are shown populated by almost insignificantly small humans, enhancing our sense of scale and man’s struggle to comprehend and tame its surroundings.

his work is evocative of german peer candida hofer {above & below}, which poetically captures ideas of architecture and absence.
