Urban Saga is a series where I intend to present the emotion I felt in
front of some of the most iconic buildings in the world. I am
suggesting the intensity of this emotion by idealizing my subject
visually presenting what I consider the best and most eloquent view of
the buildings I photograph. There is tension and serenity in these
buildings and I intend to convey this idea by using intense dark and
respectively bright tones and by emphasizing what I find to be the
most characteristic element in the frame from the point of view of its
emotional impact. By using tight frames, that emphasize more the
dominant object in the image and less the environment, I aim to
intensify the emotion the idealized shapes of the buildings create to the
viewer. By using my processing method Photography Drawing I am
able to control the distribution of tones.

This theory reflects in her personal creative and processing method, Photography Drawing (PhtD™), method based on how to process a black and white image by using the principles of classical black and white drawing.
