With an interview by Lynda Morris

Catalogue of a 1974 exhibition of the Bechers' work with a preface by Norbert Lynton and introduction - including an interview made in March 1974 - by Lynda Morris. Of the 18 images shown, nine are of objects and structures in Wales. 'Bernd and Hilla Becher have been photographing industrial structures for more than a decade: blast furnaces, bunkers, silos, cooling towers, gasometers, and pit heads. The collection began modestly as information for Bernd's paintings and has grown into a widely respected archive of industrial architecture.' (Lynda Morris writing in the Introduction).
