They present different objects of architecture and nature as well as interior spaces to the observer. The formal clearness of the image captured, the objectivity as well as the systematic and conceptual way of proceeding, characteristically refers to photo works of the Becher-circle.Gursky has exhibited internationally, including Venice Biennale of Architecture, Shanghai Biennale, 25th São Paolo Biennial, and the 12th Biennale of Sydney. Along group shows, he had numerous solo exhibitions including the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Vancouver Art Gallery, Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt, Kunstmuseum Basel, Haus der Kunst, Munich, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg and the Deichtorhallen Hamburg.Gursky ranks worldwide as one of the most successful contemporary photo artists.
