Text by Hanna Hohl and Ulrich Loock. Includes a list of plates, biography and exhibition history.

From the publisher: "Candida Houml;fer was born in 1944, studied under Bernd Becher at the Duuml;sseldorf Academy, and for the last thirty years has been documenting in photographic form public buildings and open spaces. The settings range from America to Europe. She depicts these places without their visitors, thus capturing the intensity and intimacy of human occupation by the very absence of people.
