This book is dedicated to the exhibition New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape, held in 1975 at the International Museum of Photography, and demonstrates both the historical significance of the show and its continued relevance in today’s culture.
Factories for mining, carving, and refining of stones and minerals are structures from the “Stone Age” of industrialization. Finding them all over the world, Bernd and Hilla Becher documented them in their signature style, leading us back to the times when physical labor developed from a craft into organized manufacturing.
The cycle of publications of photography by Bernd and Hilla Becher, documenting the monuments of industrial culture worldwide, continues with Coal Mine Hannibal. The Hannibal coal mine in Bochum-Hofstede was shut down on March 31, 1973.
