Candida Hofer and Rossella Bisazza

“The subjects of my work are public and semi-public spaces. I prefer them when they are without people. Spaces then seem to tell more about people, what they do for them and what people have been doing to them. Spaces are about light. This is why I photograph them in the light that I find in them, may it be natural or artificial light. Spaces have functions. Functions create similarities. I am fascinated by the differences in these similarities.” Candida Hofer.

Fondazione Bisazza – Candida Hofer. Long the preferred subject matter of Candida Hofer's photography are the interiors of public spaces; museums, libraries, public archives, theaters, offices, banks, historic buildings, all photographed with straightforward composition and long exposure times, devoid of any human figures, and illuminated solely by ambient light. Her photographs are known for their unique sharpness and clarity and do not employ any form of digital enhancement. Therefore they offer the viewer the opportunity to establish an exclusive relationship with the space being portrayed, while immersed in solitary contemplation, where every detail, (which might otherwise be invisible), can be captured by the eye.
