Following in the tradition of the Düsseldorf School of photography, Candida Höfer has often captured images of waiting rooms, spa resorts, banks, churches, libraries, theaters and museums. These transitional spaces are also places where universal culture is accumulated, organized and conserved to an encyclopedic degree, and are photographed by the artist with a rigor and simplicity approaching minimalism.
