  Bernd and Hilla Becher - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bernd and Hilla Becher (Bernd born 1931, Hilla 1934) are German photographers most known for their collection of industrial building images examining the similarities and differences in structure and appearance.
Together, the Bechers went out with a large format camera and photographed these buildings from a number of different angles, but always with a straightforward objective point of view.
As the founders of what has come to be known as the ‘Becher school’ they have brought their influence in a unique way to bear on generations of documentary photographers and artists.

A Becher image is generally marked by a surreal and wholly unpopulated sense of overcast desolation.
In this regard the Bechers are photographers squarely in the German tradition, and their impassive treatment of their subjects recalls August Sander's stoic portraits of anonymous citizens or Karl Blossfeldt's architecturally precise studies of plants.
Time and again the Bechers' landscapes reveal little towns precariously accommodating themselves to the insistent, bullying sprawl of industry; entire communities are thrown up in the shadows of these factories and mills, with neighborhoods carved out of the surrounding hills and mountainsides.
