This is the first time that it is possible to see a whole exhibit of blast furnace plant pictures taken by the couple in Germany, Belgium. Luxemburg, France and the United States.
Put together by Hilla Becher
The exhibition presents over 300 black and white photos taken at 45 blast furnace plants since the 1960s; it includes pictures series and large-format individual images that Hilla Becher has put together or has had reprinted from archival negatives for the Photographic Collection of the SK Cultural Foundation Cologne.
