Andreas Gursky's Photography


Sprueth Magers on Grafton Street is London's sister gallery to the original in Berlin. It represents many Germany artists, including Andreas Gursky, who is well known for his architecture and landscape photography.

The gallery is currently holding an exhibition of his work until the 21st June. As the title suggests, Early Landscapes focusses on Gursky's early work during the 1980s and 1990s. This is at a time before he started exploring digital technology, meaning what you see is what you get. The photographs are characterised by what Gursky terms an 'extraterrestrial perspective', suggesting that the awe inspiring scenes are too beautiful to be real or of this world.

In pictures like Niagara Falls (1989), you get a sense of how small we are compared to our surroundings, as a small boat transports people along the powerful waterfall. The same can be said of Alba (1989), where a lone figure crosses the shallow, but vast body of water.
