Roads and Paths.

Roads and Paths. Photography by Bernhard Fuchs. Essay by Heinz Liesbrock. Walther König, 2010. 120 pp., 53 color illustrations, 9¾x11".

Photographer Bernard Fuchs was a student of Bernd and Hilla Becher and in this book he's pursuing the Bechers tradition of photo-typologies.

"These routes all lead somewhere, perhaps away from civilization, but, as Fuchs makes plain, are certainly civilizing entities themselves, the artificial medium by which nature is found."

'Roads and Paths' follows Bernard Fuchs monograph 'Autos'.
