Bernd and Hilla Becher

For over 40 years, starting from the early 1960s, German artists Bernd and Hilla Becher photographed over two hundred industrial plants and buildings in Europe and North America. This included everything from water towers, coal bunkers, blast furnaces, gas tanks, coke ovens, oil refineries, grain elevators, storage silos, and warehouses. Each of these structures were photographed in an obsessively formalist way that defined a style and made them one of the most dominant influences in contemporary European photography and art. Most of the structures that the husband-wife duo photographed are now gone making these photographs the only record of the increasingly lost world of the Industrial Revolution.
