Ever since embarking on her first photographic projects in the early 1970s, Candida Hofer has been primarily interested in what could best be termed public space. This may entail interiors, such as libraries, lecture theatres, foyers, museums, club houses or, and this tends to be more rare, urban scenarios such as public squares, streets or zoos. She produced her first series on this theme even before studying under Bernd Becher at the Dusseldorf Academy of Art and she has remained faithful to the subject.

With 209 colour photographs and a penetrating introductory text by one of Europe's foremost cultural critics, this is the most complete volume available on one of the outstanding representatives of new German photography.
