About the book:
Dutch water towers are remarkable structures. They were built throughout the country and are invariably striking features of the landscape. Yet although we are all familiar with their curious outward appearance, very few of us have any idea what they look like from the inside. Their inapproachability is a source of fascination and adds to their mysterious appeal. This book is mainly devoted to Fons Brasser’s photographs, which convey the full magic of water towers as seen from the inside. Every one of the pictures reveals the true essence of the tower concerned. Brasser has an unerring talent for identifying and accurately portraying each tower’s most characteristic and mysterious element; be it an isolated technical feature, a dizzying void or a strongly associative blend of light and shade.
