Urban landscapes: voluptuous curves


These two condominium buildings, in this city on the western edge of Toronto, are the tallest and most spectacular of the five structures in the Absolute World project. These award-winning designs, completed in 2012, are 50 and 40 storeys tall. They were designed by Chinese architect Yansong Ma, who won an international design competition. They’ve been nicknamed the ‘Marylin Monroe’ towers, for obvious reasons. And those same reasons are what drew me to photograph them at sunrise during a recent Toronto trip.
It’s hard to make a bad picture of these stunning creations, but I wanted something different than the standard photographs I’d seen. Thus, the close-up view with a twisted perspective.
Nikon D90, tripod, polarizing filter, enhancing filter (probably).
