Mexico as seen by master photographer Candida Hofer. In 2014, Candida Hofer (b. Eberswalde, Germany, 1944; lives and works in Cologne) traveled to Mexico, visiting Mexico City, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Oaxaca, Puebla, Tepotzotlan, Tlacochahuaya, and Tonantzintla, where she photographed old and new libraries, theaters and opera houses, churches and museums, poorhouses and palaces.Most of the pictures are organised by symmetry along a central axis, a characteristic feature of her art. If these works suggest her training with Hilla and Bernd Becher, who taught photography in Dusseldorf?Ñshe is now the best-known of their students?Ñothers show a "new" Candida Hofer: old-fashioned offices, weather-beaten walls, and simple stores as well as a few expertly captured details of fa?ades, floors, and interiors. With an essay by the Mexican historian and economist Jose N. Iturriaga.
