The Bechers

Looking at current architectural photography, I invariably look back to the photography of Bernd and Hilla Becher. Regarded as one of the originators of the new topographic photography movement they detailed architectural design elements in their distinctive style. Objectifying to the point of classifying they produced shadowless pieces of art which uniformly show all of the nuances of functional design in the modern West. These images are from Pit Heads around Britain – mostly Wales – circa 1974.
