Born in Eberswalde, Germany in 1944, Candida H?fer attended the Kunstacademie D?sseldorf from 1973 to 1982. Whilst there she studied film with the Danish filmmaker Ole John and photography under the influential photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher, who also taught noted D?sseldorf School photographers Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Axel H?tte and Thomas Ruff.Known for her meticulously composed, large-scale color images of architectural interiors, H?fer?s oeuvre explores the structure, presentation, and influence of space. Interested in the psychological impact of design and the contrast between a room?s intended and actual use, H?fer has focused her lens on cultural and institutional buildings such as libraries, hotels, museums, concert halls, and palaces. Whilst devoid of people, the images allow us to consider the role of their missing inhabitants. The large-scale nature of the work invites the viewer to linger over the architectural details and contemplate the subtle shifts in light that make up the character of the space.
