BEIJING 8

Military Museum, Beijing



iza and her cousin Carol




The form and space of the Architecture of Communism were always spectacular.
I'm obsessed by the tension between the gigantic emptyness of space and the strong lines...
no matter they are hugh curves, straight edges or muscle tone of sculptures...





It is such a large collection ... on wars ... death ... sufferings ... saddness ...
