“Gursky’s eye wants to reach the tiniest detail, but is not prepared to give up its broad view. That is why he equally zooms out, without losing the details from sight. Nothing should escape the voyeuristic greed. That is why Gursky willingly gives up the traditional Renaissance perspective, that wanted to overlook the world from one single vantage point - with all what that entails in blurring of the image in the periphery and the depth. The stereoscopic human eye thus is multiplied into the hundred eyes of Argus - if not into the all-seeing eye of god that is everywhere - to the left and the right, above and below, nearby and far away. That explains why Gursky’s images, although he takes a bird’s eye view, and although his eagle’ eye penetrates the remotest corners of the image, nevertheless look rather flat, as if it were decorative carpets. That equally explains why the viewer is not assigned a place from within the image: he never knows where he is situated.”—ANDREAS GURSKY: “From a World’s Spirit’s Eye View” (2007)
