Additional Details: The story behind "Half-Timbered Houses" reflects the Bechers' fascination with architectural typologies and their desire to document vanishing architectural traditions.

By presenting the houses in a grid-like format, the Bechers highlight the nuances of design and construction, inviting viewers to appreciate the craftsmanship and cultural significance of these vernacular buildings.
