The Dictator’s Architect’s Dream

The Dictator's Architect

The Dictator’s Architect, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.

Briefly noted: This Photoshop composite includes pieces of governmental architecture from a number of places, including San Francisco’s City Hall and Fulgenica Batista’s Presidential Palace in Havana, Cuba.

My idea was to create an architectural fantasy reminscent of a Piranesi etching. I wanted the colors to look like those you might find in a classical painting. I created this collage for use as section opener in a book.

To get the overall sense of this one, you really need to view this image larger.
