Architecture - Martina Biccheri, Italy. I took this photo in Rome, my hometown. It was taken with a monorail view camera (5x6 film) and manually developed. It took me many tries to get the perfect shadow and exposure; I had to go back to the location several times, always hoping it was sunny enough. Once I spent the whole day in front of that wall, just to check at which time of the day the shadow looked most geometrical, eventually choosing 2pm.Picture: Martina Biccheri / 2013 Sony World Photography Awards
