Evelyn Hofer is a passionate portrait photographer. She has photographed famous contemporaries and ordinary people in the Basque region, recently married couples and people on the street. But she 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, Evelyn Hofer has sought out the motion and the stillness and revealed both in the most diverse moments. This extensive monograph presents the first ever opportunity to view all the different facets of her lifework. It shows her warm-hearted and incorruptible look at people and their surroundings. The book contains photographs from Florence, London, Spain, New York, Washington, Dublin and Paris and a wealth of portraits, landscapes and architectural photography. It concludes with Evelyn Hofer's most recently completed work, a series of picturesque still lifes.
