Urban Pulse: Rome

Cypriote photographer based in London, Lara Kantardjian says her process of shooting urban settings consists in wandering the streets like a spectator from Rilke’s “Duino Elegies”, always seeing, feeling, and connecting to everything, in search of a certain mood, a certain light, from the ordinary to the sublime state. During her first trip to Rome, she just walked around different districts taking everything in – feeling the pulse of the city, you could say. It was only in the subsequent trips that she felt more connected and knew the locations she wanted to wander around aimlessly, and could then fully concentrate in what she calls a heightened sense of awareness and seeing.
