Bernd and Hilla Becher’s foray into the world of food production focuses on grain elevators, invented for efficient loading and unloading of grain and its safe storage: cool, dry, free of pests. Mostly abandoned today, the monolithic structures towering in the flat landscapes of the world’s granaries are monuments of a bygone era.
