Auf Wiedersehen, Zwanzigste Jahrhundert

Last week German photographer Bernd Becher passed away. With his wife Hilla, he spent fifty years documenting the hidden beauties of the dying industrial landscapes of the West in incredibly beautiful black and white photographs. What a monumental achievement he made. If you've never experienced their work, you really should check out a tome (you know your coffee table *needs* a collection of rusting cooling towers sitting on top of it).
