Dark (K)Night Feeling

by thewheatandthechaff

These stunning photographs by Aurelie Curie bring to mind those many moments in the Dark Knight Trilogy where Batman – instead of doing some proper crime-fighting – is seen perched, brooding on rooftops high above Gotham City, calmly surveying his gleaming metropolis below. In her series, Above, Curie climbed to to the top of buildings and bridges to capture the many quiet moments that occur in a city when viewed from great heights. In each photograph, she combines a broad urban composition with the close details of buildings and bridge architecture to form her collection of fascinating and serene cityscapes.
