I own a copy

Okay I'll settle for the translation, but I really think Fördertürme sounds much better than mineheads.
The Becher's kind of photography is razorsharp in the mental way, considering the fact that most of the main characters in these pictures have long gone. The human urge to destruct, is too overwhelming to be able to see, what beauty their, or their grandparents, hands have made.
These photo's are a magnificent holiday through time. Between everyday anthems, that still bring their shade on human society, allthough they might not even exist to the fullest anymore.
