An exhibition by Candida Hofer recently opened at the gallery of the Fondazione Bisazza in Italy. Her works are so stunning that her photos almost resemble paintings. Hofer uses an extremely long exposure to capture these images and achieve this effect, which is definitely memorable.

The exhibition is titled Images of Architecture, and showcases Hofer's eye for detail and ability to bring to life spaces with no one present. Each photo takes on a life of its own, making viewers wonder about the people who have occupied these areas, and what will happen to these spots in a number of years. Hofer always uses the interiors of public spaces for her subject matter, which makes it even more eerie that the photos are always so void of people.
