This is a small detail of a large structure, and I took some time looking for a shot which I hoped would reflect the essence of the building.
I was born in Canada and grew up in Canada and England. I studied Mechanical Engineering in England and in France before moving to Paris where I worked as an Engineer. I then moved to Rome to learn Italian before moving to Milan, where I currently live and work. I use both Large Format wooden cameras and digital cameras for my photography. I am quietly content with the balance in old and new technologies: wood, leather, darkcloth, counting exposures, GPS, histograms, ETTR. With a digital camera you can go almost anywhere to take photographs but heavier, less travel friendly, Large Format cameras keep architecture straight, an important aspect of much of my city photography (see Apertura22.com).
