GERMAN PHOTOGRAPHY – From reality to fiction [10/05/2006]

Bernd and Hilla Becher are the leading lights of « objective » photography in Germany. Their approach refutes the anecdotal and focuses on inventorying anonymous « industrial sculptures » that appear throughout our environment. The radicalism of their documentary work had a strong impact on their students including Andreas Gursky, Thomas Ruff, Thomas STRUTH and Candida HÖFER. This later generation of photographers assimilated much of the Becher’s approach, although sometimes freeing itself from the « objective » view of reality by altering their images. From an auction and museum preference point of view, the later generation seems to have become more popular than the objective purism of the Becher period.
