What Loneliness Can Lead to (30 pics)

Posted in Pictures   9 Dec 2010   / 6206 views

These are Watts Towers constructed from different materials, including steel pipes, wire mesh, pieces of porcelain, glass and objects such as bottles, bed frames and sea shells. These unusual towers were built by Sam Rodia 50 years ago. Their heights are 30, 29.5 and 16.76 m.

Sam’s structures were built without predetermined design and meaning. But they made the sense of life of Italian immigrant who spent 33 years working on them with hand tools and without special equipment. Sam was divorced. He couldn’t see his children. He worked in city’s mines and was starving. But Watts Towers have really become the most important project in this strange man’s life.
