Andreas Gursky presents Visual Spaces of Today, a collection of his signature large format and “standard” size fine art prints, at MAST Fondazione in Italy. Curated by author, photographer, and curator Urs Stahel, who described Gursky’s work as “an experience and a step towards awareness,” his large-format prints are perfectly at home in MAST's modern, open concrete space. 

The German-born photographer is probably best known for his photograph, Rhine II, which sold for $4.3 million at auction in 2011 making it the most expensive photograph ever at the time.
