Trinity College Library Dublin I is part of a series of library images by the German artist Candida Höfer. Depicting an image of the Long Room at Trinity Collage Library, this edition was created to coincide with a solo exhibition of her work at IMMA in 2004
Born in Germany in 1944, Candida Höfer is one of the leading figures in contemporary German art photography. Having studied film at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, she went on to study photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher. Höfer was included in Documenta XI in Kassel, Germany, in 2002. In 2003 she represented Germany, along with Martin Kippenberger, at the Venice Biennale. Recent solo exhibitions include Sonnabend Gallery, New York, 2007; Galerie Friedrich, Basel, 2007; Rena Bransten Gallery, San Francisco, 2008; Johnen Galerie, Berlin, 2008 and Kukje Gallery, Seoul, 2008.
