"The title of this book «Anonyme Skulpturen», speaks of the Becher's enormous success in the art world, where theoretical position and perceived ambition are often more important than the precise nature of the work itself. The word «sculpture» immediately raises expectations above and beyond the documentary photograph. The Becher's initial project of recording industrial building types succeeds both as a document (of sculpture) and as art (as scultpure) in its own right." (Martin Parr - Gerry Badger).
