Entry Description

I had the outstanding opportunity to be asked to photograph the Transbay Transit  Center and the new Salesforce Tower in San Francisco during its construction. Built by Pelli Clark Pelli, the Transbay Transit Center is a transit station and neighborhood development project in downtown. The Salesforce tower, also known as the Transbay Tower, is the second-tallest building west of the Mississippi River after the Wilshire Grand Center in Los Angeles.Center is a transit station and neighborhood development project in downtown and the Salesforce tower, also known as the Transbay Tower, it will be the second-tallest building west of the Mississippi River after the Wilshire Grand Center in Los Angeles.

About Photographer

MY NAME IS VITTORIA ZUPICICH, I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN PERUGIA, ITALY. AFTER YEARS OF CULTIVATING MY WORK ABROAD I CAME TO SAN FRANCISCO TO GET MY MASTERS DEGREE IN PHOTOGRAPHY. AS AN ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHER MY FOCUS IS ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PEOPLE AND ARCHITECTURE. LINES, GRAPHIC ELEMENTS, REFLECTIVE MATERIALS, AND DYNAMIC FORMS OF MODERN ARCHITECTURE PRODUCE INTRIGUING COMPOSITIONS IN MY IMAGES AND EMPHASIZE THE ABSTRACT QUALITIES OF THE LOCATIONS TO ENGAGE IN A FURTHER EVALUATION OF HOW PEOPLE PERCEIVE AND INTERACT SPONTANEOUSLY WITH THE SURROUNDING URBAN ENVIRONMENTS OF OUR TIME.
