why i love Andreas Gursky.

Andreas Gursky is a German visual artist, best known for his striking large format architecture and landscape colour photographs. He was born in Leipzig, in 1955, and in the early 80s went to attend Germany’s State Art Academy. Today he holds the record for the most expensively sold photograph which fetched $4.300.000 in an auction in New York.

Even though he might not seem like an obvious choice for me, i still like his pictures very much, especially the earlier ones, because of his distinct and precise method in categorising and cataloging what he sees. Dispationate as the approach might be, the unbelievable images still evoke strong feelings to the viewer. These large, anonymous spaces observed sincerely from such a distance as to take everything in are filled with a mysticism of shapes and colours that will inevitably speak to anyone experiencing the modern world and its changes.
