Review of Candida Höfer: A Return to Italy at Ben Brown Fine Arts


Candida Höfer: A
Return to Italy

Ben Brown Fine Arts

12 February – 12
April 2013

Those of us lucky enough to live or work amongst

and previously unseen photographs documenting the region’s architectural
treasures: the interiors of palaces, opera houses, libraries and theatres.
