I’ve just been introduced to these great works by Hilla and Bernd Becher. There’s something cool within repetition that isn’t exact actual repetition. It’s like a harmony, where each overlapping individual thing produces a richer whole and thus a distinct experience. On top of that, they can be truly intriguing, inviting fascination with the collection and collectiveness and patterns and similarities and differences and organization of them all.
(Also, check out Hiroshi Sugimoto’s Seascapes series. It is equally interesting and fascinating… especially when coupled with some great architecture and artistic placement such as at the Benesse House by Tadao Ando!)
