7 Dec 2009 5:19pm

Alivia from Saint-Etienne, France

This series is extraordinary by the sundrytable hours of shooting that alters many aspects of this ruin, the wall becomes an allegory following hours of the day or evening fell. Here, take this late with the moon has a fantastic and unreal, color brick becomes agonizing with this black cloud that hovers above the wall, one imagines a scene of black film and expected more .. Bravo, Steve, not monotony but a constructive continuity.

7 Dec 2009 5:48pm
