Bernd Becher – photographer

Bernd Becher has died. His apparently simple photographs of gas tanks, water tanks, silos and so on, form a wonderful documentary of, and engagement with, industrial structures.

Have a look for his books if you don’t know them already. “Basic Forms of Industrial Buildings” is a good start.
