Abstract (English)

"[...] With a scholarly text, extensive artist bios, and a plate section dedicated to each of these artists, The Düsseldorf School of Photography presents over 160 images in a spectacular overview from the early 1970s to today. The Düsseldorf School of Photography has become synonymous with artistic excellence and innovation. It began in the mid 1970s at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under the instruction of the influential photographers Bernd and Hilla Becher, known for their comparative grids of mundane industrial buildings captured with an objective and clinical eye. This school has not only birthed some of today's most important and successful photographers, but has also had a fundamental and lasting influence on the history of the medium." -- Publisher's website.
