Typologies Anciennes
by Bernd Becher
Publisher's Description
The Becher's pictures can be compared to the identification sheets in a catalogue of disused industrial buildings, presenting in the form of illustration plates a series of cooling towers, water towers, gasholders, blast furnaces, etc. This inventory of industrial heritage is also a compilation of 'typologies' in the tradition of the German objective photography. Although its illustrations span a number of years, from the end of the 1960s to the end of the 1970s, Ancient Typologies revists a moment in the oevure. The photographic plates presented in this book were first exhibited at the 14th Sao Paulo International Biennial in 1977.
