Günther Förg (born 1952 in Füssen, Germany; died 2013 in Freiburg, Germany).

A series of black-and-white and color photographs of the German Pavilion, designed by Mies van der Rohe, originally from the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona.

“These monumental photographs obscure the austerity of Mies van der Rohe’s architectural masterpiece by engaging corners, furniture, and interior walls with a vague intimacy that flirts with nostalgia.”
