A beautiful book of Bernd and Hilla Becher's photography of industrial buildings
Bernd and Hilla Becher met in Düsseldorf at the end of the fifties and have been working together since then, for over forty years, on an archive for industrial architecture.
This exhibition catalogue accompanying a show at Munich's Haus der Kunst collects all known Becher studies of industrial building types and presents them as a visual encyclopedia.
The 1500 images are divided into 130 plates with between six and thirty photos to a plate. Each chapter is devoted to a different structure--water towers, coal bunkers, winding towers, breakers (ore, coal, and stone), lime kilns, grain elevators, blast furnaces, steel mills, and factory facades. The briefest of captions locate the place, country and the photo date.
