Photographer Andreas Gursky recently opened an exhibition of his large scale work at Museum Kunstpalast, in Düsseldorf, Germany. Through a selection of old and new works Gursky brings his own sense of beauty to the human world we live in, illustrated through cropped close-ups and intense, wide landscapes. “It is not pure photography, what I do. All my works are based on a direct visual experience from which I develop a pictorial idea, and after that, there’s a studio testing to prove their plausibility, and finally they’e worked out with the help of a computer.” The exhibition runs through January 13, 2013.
