The environment we live in is a cumulative effort of thousands of years of technology, philosophy, knowledge and ideas. From the greatest most enduring edifices of man to the transient temporary creations, each and every one of it is a monument. A monument to technology, to a certain need, to a certain expression. It is not the biggest monuments which defines us, but the most humble of structures that defines who we are. It is an expression, and extension of ourselves. Who we are, what we do and what we believe in.
In this series, nondescript and landmark buildings alike were portrayed to look like the pyramids of Egypt, the most famous and enduring structures built in the short history of mankind's existence on earth and the epitome of the notion of 'monumentalism' in architecture as the desire of a few powerful people. Since the 19th century there had been a shift, and monumental buildings are no longer built by a community, or by a single powerful dynastic, political or religious leader, instead numerous individuals now have the financial ability and the functional need to construct monuments.
This series of photographs are a hymn to the desires and dreams of humanity to leave enduring legacies to their individual interests. However often overlooked are the constructions of the non-powerful, the non-rich, by the common man.
