Typological, repetitive, and at times oddly humorous, the Bechers' photographs of industrial structures are, in their cumulative effect, profoundly moving. Blast Furnaces represents a continuation of—but also a counterpoint to—the Bechers' earlier book Watertowers, in which basic functional elements were hidden or clothed in disguises. In this book the prints record a purely functional and exposed architecture, built to contain heat, pressure and accumulations of gases, and unhindered by any outside constraints.
