IF YOU'rE IN LONDON, SEE THIS EXHIBITION

Andreas Gursky, the German born photographer, who along with Henri Cartier Bresson is one of my favourites and he's got a major retrospective at the Hayward Gallery in London.

Known for his large-scale, often spectacular pictures that portray emblematic sites and scenes of the global economy and contemporary life, he is widely regarded as one of the most significant photographers of our time.

Driven by an interest and insight into ‘the way that the world is constituted’, as well as what he describes as ‘the pure joy of seeing’, Gursky makes photographs that are not just depictions of places or situations, but reflections on the nature of image-making and the limits of human perception. Often taken from a high vantage point, these images make use of a ‘democratic’ perspective that gives equal importance to all elements of his highly detailed scenes.
