  • "In my photographs I speak of silence and distance. For me it is fundamental that the atmosphere, the light, the colors are grasped. Among those who look at my works there are some who find details that not even I had noticed, and that is a wonderful gift for me. This is my work and it’s what I was seeking when I chose to become an artist: being able to show people everything that I have to make them see."
    —Candida Höfer
