Summary This thesis seeks to depict the organic pulse that animates life in an urban environment. This work challenges the ways in which the camera has often functioned with regard to Modern and Postmodern architecture. The artist photographs these impressive structures in order to record moments in which mirrored glass and steel reflect their surroundings and become crystallized into a solitary image. The artist approaches each skyscraper as a living being, sometimes to use it as a mirror reflecting its surrounding and other times to create an optical veil through which it becomes diffused.
