Mosque on the Snow - 2011
Mosque on the snow, 2011, photo 90 x 125 cm, lambda on aluminum
An immense mosque on snow seems to rise above the town of Prishtina, where the 99 glass cupolas of building act as a sort of counter altar to the soft sinuosity of the snow.
The National Library of Prishtina in Kosovo, commissioned by the Serb state to a Croatian architect, Andrija Mutnjakovic, and inaugurated in 1982, is considered one of the symbols of modern Balkan architecture, an innovative project, although even today, people find it a terrifying piece of architecture.
Curious of the contrast of this double perception, I have take a series of photos from which I try to give a sense of the further possible perception.
