Candida Höfer - National Library in Paris
Candida Höfer was one of Bernd and Hilla Becher's leading students in Dusseldorf. After her studies, the photographer from Cologne started her career taking portraits, but later shifted to depicting larger interior spaces devoid of humans. Libraries, lecture halls, concert halls, museums and coffee shops - she's captured them all. Höfer is one of the most celebrated photographers in Germany today.
