I recently visited Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal. I was very much taken by its architecture characterised by intricate manoeuvrings with the most unlikely forms and contours. When light eventually descends on the city, be it at dawn or dusk, shadows intersect as if building structures, objects, the people morph into each other. I photographed mainly tourists who, as I saw it photographically, were compelled to become part of the city's mirage-like, mirror-like nature; who at every point balance out the spatial discrepancies of a city that seems to have erupted out of a series of parallax errors.
