Basic Forms of Industrial Buildings

  • Comment
review - By Bernd & Hilla Becher. Thames & Hudson, 2005. 144pp. £19.95

The Bechers' photographs of industrial structures on the verge of disuse or demolition have become increasingly familiar in the last few years, not just in museums and galleries, but in the complete works being published by MIT Press. Those volumes, each devoted to a specific building type, are beautifully produced, but expensive.

Here, from Thames & Hudson, is a cheap alternative, offering a survey of the Bechers' work, with more than 60 good-quality reproductions.
