Andreas Gursky: In Memory of Bernd Becher

Laurie Lambrecht sent me this link today
to a wonderful tribute in The Art Newspaper from Andreas Gursky to his mentor Bernd Becher who recently passed away.

It reminds me of how important our time with mentors is. Next week I will travel to Minneapolis to be present at the memorial honoring Carroll T. “Ted” Hartwell, long-time curator of photography at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and in early October to NYC for the memorial honoring John Szarkowski, long-time curator at MoMA. Do not understimate the value of our wise elders, and treasure the time you have with them.
