Whether I am shooting photographs from a rickety old city bus out the gritty window toward the Colosseum in a torrential rainstorm, or from the tranquility beneath the Pantheon in radiant light, it is her contradictions that move me. Looking upwards inside this sacred dome, unscathed from the depths of time, its beam of light loom surprisingly from its circular opening, filling the whole curvaceous space with its serenity. I endeavor to capture both the grit and luminosity of this enchanting place, while exploring and exposing the multi-dimensional perspectives I see.
