Item description for Basic Forms of Industrial Buildings by Bernd Becher & Hilla Becher...

There is no end to the awards and prizes honoring the work of Bernd and Hilla Becher. After the Golden Lion at the 1990 Venice Biennial, the 1995 Goslar Kaiserring, and the Erasmus Prize awarded to the photographers in Amsterdam in 2002, they received the prestigious Hasselblad Foundation International Award for outstanding accomplishments in photography in November 2004. On the occasion of this tribute we are enlarging our 13-volume Becher edition with another publication. During their 40-year career the Bechers kept focusing on the same subjects over and over again, creating an invaluable photographic encyclopedia of industrial structures. Basic Forms presents 61 photographs covering the entire range of Becher motifs---water towers, cooling towers, gas tanks, winding towers, blast furnaces, gravel plants, lime kilns, and grain elevators.

Reviews - What do customers think about Basic Forms of Industrial Buildings?

The Great Photographic Chroniclers of the Rust Belt   Mar 28, 2006
Bernd and Hilla Becher have spent the past 45 years travelling the rust belts of Northern Europe and the United States taking photographs of decaying industrial buildings. "Basic Forms of Industrial Buildings" brings together 61 black and white photographs that chronicle the different forms of such common place buildings as water towers, coal bins, gravel plants and blast furnaces. Their approach is to find an interesting building and photograph it straight on without distractions such as people or even clouds. While these images are essentially cold and hyper-analytic they nevertheless open the viewers eyes to the sculptural possibilities of even the ugliest industrial buildings. I found the Becher's photographs to be wonderful contrasts to that other great chronicler of urban American decay, Jose Camilo Vergara. An interesting and thought provoking book.
