photo shows a view out from a very dark space - people can be glimpsed as silhouttes in the foreground

Miroslaw Balka, How It Is. Tate Modern, 2009/10, interior view. © the artist Photo: Tate Photography

In this image the camera is situated inside the black, lightless space. Some light from outside silhouettes figures seen in the foreground. There is little colour in the image, just a glimpse of what it must have been like to be in the black volume.
