    Matthias Schaller has just produced a distinguished homage to the founding figures of the Dusseldorf school, Bernd and Hill Becher, in the form of a book, Die Muëhle, minutely, one might say forensically recording the exterior and interiors of their home. The volume is published by Steidl with an introduction by Thomas Weski.
