Entry Description

A project showing two cable-stayed bridges in Greece, one in Athens and the other in Patras, the larges cable-stayed bridge in the world. A story about light, shadow and how they play with these bridges. It is always fascinating how light can create volumes and make them emerge from darkness and how a photographer can use it to emphasize even such thin and overlooked volumes as the cables of a bridge. These cables are the subject of the series, together with the feeling of exuberance that such a cable-stayed bridge can give to the viewer when light and lines are used to drive the eye to the apex of this structure.
