Candida Hofer in Mexico

In stock (50 items available)
Mexico as seen by master photographer Candida Hofer. In 2014, Candida Hofer (b. Eberswalde, Germany, 1944; lives and works in Cologne) traveled to Mexico, visiting Mexico City, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Oaxaca, Puebla, Tepotzotlan, Tlacochahuaya, and Tonantzintla, where she photographed old and new libraries, theaters and opera houses, churches and museums, poorhouses and palaces.Most of the pictures are organised by symmetry along a central axis, a characteristic feature of her art. If these works suggest her training with Hilla and Bernd Becher, who taught photography in Dusseldorf--she is now the best-known of their students--others show a "new" Candida Hofer: old-fashioned offices, weather-beaten walls, and simple stores as well as a few expertly captured details of facades, floors, and interiors. With an essay by the Mexican historian and economist Jose N. Iturriaga.
