Basic Forms | Bernd & Hilla Becher

Regular price £24.99

Some of our favourite structures come under the banner of 'anonymous industrial architecture' - gasometers, cooling towers, grain elevators, that kind of thing. They loom large in the landscape, now often defunct and derelict, monsters of a bygone age.

 

The Bechers took it upon themselves to photograph these industrial buildings, amassing over the decades a catalogue of images that form an invaluable encyclopedia - a collection of typologies that, in our post-industrial age, captures 'the industrial culture of an ending age'.

 

Containing sixty-one of these 'basic forms', this book is an absolute classic in the field of photography and one we're overjoyed to have back in this recently re-published Prestel edition.
