Andreas Gursky: Photographs 1994-1998

Serpentine South Gallery 21 Jan — 7 Mar 1999 Free

An exhibition of photographs, completed by Andreas Gursky over a period of months leading up to the show.

This was the first major presentation in London of Gursky’s work. The exhibition included new photographs that were displayed for the first time in Britain at the Serpentine Gallery. Gursky’s microscopically detailed and meticulously planned images were created using a five-by-four plate camera. Panoramic in scope and epic in proportions, his photographs are extraordinary documents of a post-industrial world. His recent works were completed with the use of computer manipulation.
