Bernhard Fuchs is one of my favorite contemporaries working in photography today. He is originally from Austria and studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Bernd Becher. I first discovered his work at a bookstore in Berlin several years ago. I think each of his incredible books has been executed with great care and thought. His work is rooted in typologies and within that construct he is always pointing his camera at someone or something splendid and lovely.
