Seventy Fourth Collection
New York City - The Oculus
In the place where so many died, the transportation hub built by Santiago Calatrava has a clear statement: against death the light of a wing of a bird, maybe a seagull, maybe a nightingale… just a free wing flying towards the sun.
The Mosque of Sultan Hassan stands in the shadow of the Citadel, Cairo.
The building is heavy and impressive – XIV century, Mamluk architecture style. The light comes from above and draws lines of shadows and light. The prayers are silent as if the link with the divine as a special voice we can’t hear. A shadow passes by and I caught the smooth movement of a body. Maybe it was an angel.
