Andreas Gursky at Hayward Gallery from tomorrow until 22 April

The exhibition marks the first UK retrospective of the German photographer, who’s known for large-scale images that delve into stories of globalisation, collective existence and contemporary life. In a series of photos taken from the early 1980s to the modern day, Gursky questions how the world around us is formed, and our perception of and interplay with this environment. Study around 60 of the artist’s works, including urban landscape Paris, Montparnasse (1993), a minimalist take on Germany’s famous river in Rhine II (1999, remastered 2015), and a focus on revellers at the Mayday techno music festival May Day IV (2000/2014).

The pieces are generously lit by the gallery’s new pyramid roof lights, which were installed as part of the two-year refurbishment ahead of the gallery’s 50th anniversary in 2018.
