Basilica di Siponto - Edoardo Tresoldi

Mediterranean Sunset In Siponto

On a very hot summer’s day in Manfredonia, Puglia, I decided to visit the huge installation "Basilica di Siponto" created by the artist Edoardo Tresoldi. I don't usually shoot architecture without scouting first, but this place was special. I felt a sense of urgency so I grabbed my tripod and camera from the trunk and waited for the moment when the setting sun let me capture the ephemeral design of this art. I tried to transfer the thrill of that place, going beyond the simple description. Describe a fascination made by thin grey lines, strengthen the geometry and the lightness of the art, taking off the colours of the space to make it more graphic.

"Mediterranean Sunset in Siponto" has been shortlisted at 2018 Sony World Photography Awards in the Architecture category.
