LIGHT | SHADOW

Last October I traveled to Barcelona, Spain to explore Spanish architecture, culture and food.  I did all and subsequently fell in love with the city, weather and people.  One thing that I found throughout the city was the strength of the sun, and the contrast between the light and dark spaces.  The different materials used creates different shadows, below I’ve shown examples of rough stone, smooth concrete and course brick.  The light reacts much harsher to the smooth concrete and therefore makes cleaner dark spaces.  In contrast the light hits the rough stone and course bricks and seems to blend into darker space.  Barcelona was one of my favorite cities and I’m sure will be explored further in this blog.
