Sander and Becher Exhibitions at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles

If you are in the vicinity of the Getty Museum between now and September 14th, don’t miss these two shows:

August Sander: People of the Twentieth Century

“See August Sander’s riveting portrait of the German people in the early 20th century. Come eye to eye with rural farmers and city aristocrats, businessmen and tradesmen, artists and inventors in this exhibition that presents one of the most moving groups of photographic portraits ever made.”

Bernd and Hilla Becher: Basic Forms

“Architectural forms—winding towers, framework houses, blast furnaces, water towers—reveal unexpected beauty in these photographs by Bernd and Hilla Becher. Many of the Bechers’ early images were taken in the Siegen district, where August Sander’s subjects had lived or worked half a century before.”
