Rome XI. Italy, 2016. This photograph is a part of the ‘Threshold’ series that reflects on the architectural landscape of Rome - a time capsule of the ancient, perpetually interwoven into the present moment. The juxtaposition of the iconic and ubiquitous - the fragility of the once monumental structures, now in desperate need of care and protection - stirs up questions of mortality and timelessness.
I captured this image on Christmas Day. Just as the sun was about to set, its almost deep golden light was softly touching facades of the centuries-old buildings on one of the shortest days of the year. I felt humbled by being able to witness the juxtaposition of another day coming to its end over the city that has been called ‘Eternal.’
