Water Towers

Water Towers

This is one of many works by Bernd and Hilla Becher, in which they photographed old industrial structures; in this case water towers. They were interested in the idea of these structures as ‘anonymous sculptures’, serving more than just their immediate purpose. Although they all serve the same function and may be made out of similar material, they all differ in structure or form.

This has intrigued me as the Doocots below have that same quality, standing alone in their setting as sculptures in their own right, each being unique to the way in which their owner made them.
