Item Description: Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, 1956. Spiral Bound Printed Wrappers. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition 1/1300. Square 8vo. np (128pp), profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Designed by Edward Wright. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. A decade before it became ground zero for the Swingin' sixties, London was still shrouded in industrial smoke and rebuilding from the carnage of the Blitz. Its art schools and architectural colleges were however already working towards a colorful, less class-stratified post-war Britain filled with modernist architecture, art, and design for the consumer-driven masses. This generation of forward thinkers loosely known as "The Independent Group" gave birth to the ground-breaking 1956 "This Is Tomorrow" exhibition held at the Whitechapel Art Gallery. Presciently combining corporate sponsors with twelve "teams" of younger architects, designers, and theorists, the exhibition presented a dozen distinct collaborative environments that were clear forerunners of both Pop and Installation Art. The complete list of participants of the "This is Tomorrow" exhibition and its graphically innovative catalogue were Theo Crosby, Germano Facetti, William Turnbull, Edward Wright, Richard Hamilton, John McHale, John Voelcker, J. D. H. Catleugh, James Hull, Leslie Thornton, Anthony Jackson, Sarah Jackson, Emilio Scanavino, John Ernest, Anthony Hill, Denis Williams, Eduardo Paolozzi, Alison and Peter Smithson, Nigel Henderson, Victor Pasmore, Erno Goldfinger, Helen Phillips, James Stirling, Michael Pine, Richard Matthews, Kenneth Martin, Mary Martin and John Weeks, Robert Adams, Frank Newby, Peter Carter, Colin St. John Wilson, Adrian Heath, John Weeks, Lawrence Alloway, Geoffrey Holroyd, Toni del Renzio. A complete, internally most handsome example of the uncommon 1956 first edition of this vital document limited to one thousand, three hundred unnumbered copies showing some mild overall wear, creasing, and soiling to the extremities of the covers and textblock along with some typical loss of the some of the white enamel coating of the wire spiral binding. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. Exhibition Catalog.

Item Description: The MIT Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London, 1988. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st. First English edition, first printing. Hardcover. Blue cloth-covered boards with title stamped in gray on spine; with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs and text by Bernd and Hilla Becher. Foreword by Reyner Banham. Commentary by Weston J. Naef. Unpaginated, with 223 duotone plates. 11-5/8 x 9-3/8 inches. [Cited in Martin Parr and Gerry Badger, The Photobook: A History, Volume II. (London and New York: Phaidon, 2006).]. Near Fine (corners very slightly blunted) in Near Fine dust jacket (light wrinkles at the corners and extremities, slight toning, else Fine). From the publisher: "Hilla and Bernd Becher's cool, objective photographs of industrial structures have earned them a special position in international photography. Although their work is widely collected by American dealers and institutions and shown in New York galleries, this is the first time that it has been published in book form in the United States.The Bechers' 224 photographs of watertowers comprise a unique, single minded, even obsessive mission. They were taken from as many as 8 angles, over a period of 25 years, with a stylistic approach so consistent that photographs juxtaposed from the 1950s and 1980s suggest a minute to minute account [with] deadpan portraits of unadorned metal, concrete, and wooden structures. Always taken in overcast skies, or in the hazy sunlight of industrial zones, these seemingly artless photographs belie the elaborate process and decisions involved in creating them: elevating the camera on scaffolds or ladders, waiting for clouds to block the sun, enlisting the cooperation of plant foremen and security guards to remove all signs of human life from the scene. The Bechers refer to their photographs as 'typology' or 'typologies of topographies,' situated between established categories such as art and photography. Their work is distancing, deliberately unglamorous, departing from the usual style of architectural photography. Almost everything they photograph is eventually demolished. Hilla and Bernd Becher began their collaborative enterprise in 1957, when they did a study of workers' houses in their native Germany. Through the years, their extensive documentation of industrial landscapes has taken them outside of Germany to France, England, Scotland, Wales, Holland, and the United States. The Bechers follow in a distinguished line of German photographers active in the Rhineland, including August Sander, Albert Renger-Patzsch, and Werner Manz, all of whom contributed in different ways to the definition of 'objective' photography.".
