Drawing on influences from the New Topographics movement and the seminal work of Hilla and Bernd Becher, this series on Water Towers in New Delhi explores the city’s urban fabric through these markers in the landscape. Photographed with a large format camera and colour film, the water towers are shown centered in the frame with the city unfolding around them. They are significantly taller than everything around them, reflecting the lack of height in New Delhi’s urban landscape and hinting at their function in providing pressurised water to 4 storey apartments and houses around them. In this context, the water towers function both as a modern version of the village well and as a crucial, if often overlooked, element of a modernising society.
