Axel Hütte, born in 1951 in Essen, is among the most renowned German photographers and - as a student of Bernd Becher at the Academy of Fine Art - a representative of the so-called Düsseldorf School of Photography. Studying between 1973 to 1981, alongside Thomas Struth and Andreas Gursky, Axel Hütte began to exhibit within his university years, with a group debut at the Landesmuseum in Bonn (1979) and first one-man show at the Galerie Konrad Fischer in Düsseldorf (1984). Dead-pan and restrained, the photographer has chosen landscape as his main subject, portraying deserted cityscapes or gentle nocturnes in the series "As Dark As Light" (1996-2001). The artist came to serious art world prominence around the early-90s, exhibiting extensively inside and outside Germany, including the Fridericianum in Kassel (1991, 1994), Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago (1991), and National Museum of Modern Art in Osaka (1995), among others. More recently, his work has been displayed in exhibitions such as "Landscape in my Mind" (2015) at the Kunstforum in Vienna, "Fantasy and Reality" (2014) shown in Modena and Venice, and "Human Nature" (2014-5) displayed in Eschborn and Düsseldorf.
