Bernd & Hilla Becher: Steinwerke und Kalköfen
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 volume 'Steinwerke und Kalköfen' is devoted to photographs of rock and lime processing plants shot in Germany, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Great Britain throughout the 1980s and 90s.
