Bernd & Hilla Becher

Bernhard »Bernd« Becher (1931–2007) and Hilla Becher (1934–2015) were German conceptual artists and photographers working as a collaborative duo. They are best known for their extensive series of photographic images, or typologies, of industrial buildings and structures. As founders of what has come to be known as the »Becher« or »Dusseldorf« School of Photography, they influenced generations of documentary photographers and artists.
