Structural studies in India by John Brooks

This series explores the dimensionality of a number of water towers in India which were built by the "British Empire" and are made from reinforced concrete. Although quite old they still maintain their function and are objects of wonder and beauty to me. They are complex and rise towards the heavens like a growing plant attracted by the sun.
My abstract representation of them is based upon their 3 dimension spatiality which cannot be expressed so successfully by a simple single image. Therefore I have created my impression of them by multiple exposure techniques and layered these in a transparent form. I hope you enjoy these interpretations as much as I did in their creation?
