No. 7 Angie McMonigal

"By emphasizing the subjects' details - its intricacies and nuances - its essence is revealed."

The built environment created by humans, gives us shelter, and holds some of our most prized possessions, whether in our homes, museums, schools, or libraries. Yet we often take these environments for granted, overlooking them as they blur into the background. It's human nature to become complacent with the everyday sites around us; by breaking down familiar structures into their unique parts, we can see the whole more clearly. We can appreciate that which is often overlooked.
