Metaphysics, what exists beyond what we see or perceive, has long been a concern of mine. Here I follow the intent of De Chirico’s Schola Metafisica and use Rationalist buildings as a stone metaphor of what stays unchanged and exists beyond the flow of time. Rationalist architecture refuses decoration so that buildings are essential, geometric shapes. In short, naked forms: the true essence of things. Taken on 4x5 Ilford FP4+ film.
