Tourism, idealism, grandeur have developed thorugh histories of belief, poverty, and progress. Places revereed for their innovations in art and culture have been economically rescucitated by waves of travelers. Interested in Beauty as a force of truth, I worked to create a series of sublime images. To depict a beauty maintained not by nostalgia alone, but by the cultural celebration to uphold structures of the past for their inherent value to the intangible human soul. Instead of racing towards a future, pausing to witness the values developed and prolifereated throughout the enlightenment.
