Ecological Warriors by George Parapadakis (monocotylidono)
Clear

A “green” army, get it? ;-)

Small section of a large mural relief in the town centre of Roermond, in The Netherlands. I have not found out the artist yet, or what it is supposed to depict, but I love the strict geometrical style and all the different textures and shadows.

The idea that it may be depicting warriors, came from the similarity to some of the archaeological findings from 8th century BC Greek art, like this:

(Casio EX-S10 @6mm, ISO 800, 1/100 sec, f:2.8; Barrel distortion correction in PS)

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.
