The geometry reminds me of the works of the cubist artist Piet Mondrian. He was widely criticized as cold and analytical and unnatural but somehow I keep seeing his essential vision arising in the cityscape of Rio Branco, except that here there is an added sensuality that retains nature. Photographically, I find the contradictory mix of abstract and organic as both mysterious and intriguing.
