Axel Hütte: Early Works 1978-95 / Night and Day (2 volumes)

Beat Wismer (editor)

"Early Works" is devoted to the years 1978 to 1995. Alongside portraits of colleagues and friends, which are presented here on a large scale for the first time, Hütte was particularly interested at the time in architectonic formations, such as stairwells and corridors in apartment buildings from the post-war era; underground stations in Berlin; buildings and squares in London, Venice and Paris; and ultimately landscapes in Italy, which are inscribed with a special regulatory dimension by fragments of architecture. As different as the places in these photographs are, there is a common interest in their representation. "Night and Day" presents around 80 large-format nocturnal and daytime pictures from the years 1995 to 2017, including thus far unpublished works from Canada and the USA. Hütte began his nocturnal cycle with dimly-lit landscapes, before focusing his gaze on illuminated cities in Europe, America and Asia in later years.
