Reflections of the city.
The city lives. It breathes. It moves. It reflects.
I walked the streets, searching for the elusive purity and simplicity of everyday life of the city and its inhabitants. I was looking for its soul hiding behind the facade of daily bustle. In reflections, I was trying to catch a glimpse of its real face. The buildings became shapes, and the lights transformed into splashes of color. I tried to get really close, as if taking a photograph of someone I see every day and finding new expressions among the familiar features.
And my city revealed itself to me.
