The Stedelijk Museum already has two earlier works by Gursky. Andreas Gursky's photographs are noted for the confusing physical and spatial experience they present. Their monumental format is unusual in photography and literally forces viewers to distance themselves from the work, at the same time the viewer can easily loose themselves in the image. Gursky's photographs have no vanishing point, simply because since the early 1990's he has used digital manipulation techniques to combine different shots to create a single image. This is how he creates the confusing experience of micro and macro-nuances. The digitally manipulated colors further reinforce the decorative and abstract character of his pictures.
