Fraenkel Gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition of photographs by celebrated German artists Bernd and Hilla Becher, their fifth with the gallery. The exhibition features a wide range of work, including examples of the artists’ pioneering typologies, which group images of blast furnaces, grain elevators, and other industrial structures into grids, transforming them into “anonymous sculpture.” Other highlights include early industrial landscapes, and a selection of photographs of a variety of water towers from the U.S., Germany, France, and Great Britain.
