Andreas Gursky

Andreas Gursky's photographs are large and busy, he likes to portray modern human activity, capitalism and consumerism. He digitally manipulates and merges the multiple positioned shots into ordered/repetative images of huge scale. The photographs are impersonal and full of atmosphere. The photographs are all taken from a high vantage point which can make them look and feel disturbing "someone is watching".
Camera position is the important element of his work. Usually Gursky places his camera up high or as far away as possible, on cranes, or even on helicopters. (Saltz: 2007).
