As with many of Howard Bond's photographs, this image depicts a detail from a larger architectural structure that the photographer has rendered at such close range it becomes almost abstract. Strong contrasts between light and dark further flatten the image and divorce it from its context—only the title tells us we are looking at a building in Greece. Subtle, swirling, textural variations are visible on the concrete surface of the building, but the overarching impression of the structure is rigid, geometric precision.Physical Description
