Evelyn Hofer has photographed famous contemporaries and ordinary people in the Basque region, and recently, this passionate portrait photographer has turned married couples and people on the street into her subjects. But Hofer can also wait patiently for hours until her frame contains no people at all. Then she adds the pure beauty of the countryside or a venerable old building to a stark and timeless composition. Throughout her long photographic career, Hofer has sought both motion and stillness and balanced and revealed these qualities through the most diverse moments. This extensive monograph on the varied facets of her life’s work shows her warm-hearted and incorruptible look at people and their surroundings. Containing photographs from Florence, London, Spain, New York, Washington, Dublin and Paris, along with a wealth of portraits, landscapes and architectural photography, this book concludes with Hofer’s most recently completed work, a series of picturesque still lifes.
