Axel Hütte: Scenic "Night & Day"

2017-08-30 2

German photographer Axel Hütte is part of Germany's postwar photographers who've been shaping contemporary German photography that reminisce of Bernd Becher's reportage-like visual.

Hütte considers himself a "landscape painter", drawing his motifs by systemizing landscape work whether in nature or urban settings.

Like his contemporaries Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff and Andreas Gursky, Hütte approaches his subjects with sober yet mesmerizing lens, examining the uneasy interaction between buildings and the environment, from Alpine glaciers and to the South-American jungle. In this new series, Hütte captureed 70-large scale daytime and nighttime photos dating way back from 1995 to 2017.
