Andreas Gursky is man known for his large format architecture and landscape colour photographs. His photos are well known due to them being presented in several exhibitions in international exhibitions and museums. They include the Venice Biennale exhibition of 1990 and at the White Cube in London.
He focus on the photography area when he enter Kunstakademie Dusseldorf, a college in Germany. He soon started his photo taking in Germany and travel to Japan, Thailand, North Korea, China, ext.. His photos are sold off due how beautiful and unique the photos are. Some say it’s a scandal and are criticizing his works, but that doesn’t stop Andreas from taking more photos. My favorite photo that he took was the one with the workers at a cane furniture factory in Nha Trang, Vietnam.
The reason why it’s my favorite is because of the high view of people working. To others it can show people working in complete chaos, but to me it shows that those workers have their own type of system of how things work. Call me crazy but that’s how I think about it. It’s amazing how this German man travels to different countires and chase after for the perfect shot, even if there are people out their who give negative comments about them.
