The Düsseldorf School of Photography has become a byword for artistic excellence
This large format, magnificently printed volume traces the school's ascendancy from the mid-1970s, when husband and wife team Bernd and Hilla Becher first gave art photography institutional support and a home.
Filled with superb reproductions of three generations of the participating artists’ best-known photographs, this impeccable survey offers the first thorough overview of this important school, one that now dominates sale-rooms and museums.
