 Andreas Gursky
«Charles de Gaulle»

In this view of the Paris airline terminal, Gursky strengthens and intensifies the visual impressions of urban structures by increasing, several times over, the complexity of a spatial situation with tube-like connecting routes: here, in the first of Gursky’s digitally post-processed photographs, more tubes appear than there are in reality. While creating the impression of a real architecture – at the same time the confusing, ornamental structure of the image offers the gaze no support and heightens the supposed pictorialness.
