"Empire State of Mind - cityscapes from United States"

Experiencing the vastness of the American cityscapes, I am reminded of Rem Koolhaas ‘Bigness’: “Beyond a certain scale, architecture acquires the properties of Bigness. The best reason to broach Bigness is the one given by climbers of Mount Everest: “because it is there.” Bigness is ultimate architecture.”  
With this series the scale is broadened to scenes from urban and suburban parts of the visited locations, in search of the iconic and the genius loci. Images presenting characteristic and unique features of landmark places, unapologetic of their strong presence, inviting us to connect - be it for a reason, for a season or for a lifetime.
Images are part of the photographic project - 'Integral Lens: an integral approaches to architectural photography’ - taken during a 5-month journey in United States awarded with the Fulbright Artist Scholarship and sponsored by the College of Architecture and Design of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
