Nature’s Gaze Within the Urban Landscape

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

I photographed this recent, ongoing series in various areas of Albania’s capital, my current home. I aim to present viewers with everyday sights of natural and urban elements, in what appear as harmonic coexistences. The city vegetation, with its humble, yet ever-changing gaze, seems to show itself as a passing-by visitor to Tirana’s landscapes. I would like to believe that it patiently waits for a moment and an opportunity to take over.
