Photographer of the Week: Danica O. Kus

The week with Danica O. Kus will be spent in company with the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, who perhaps is most known for designing the buildings in Brasilia. Danica´s interpretation of his work is beautiful and imaginative. Her pictures were taken in Spain (Avilés) in 2011 and in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro - Niteroi, Curitiba, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Sao Paulo) in 2012 and 2013.

"I am not attracted to straight angles or to the straight line, hard and inflexible, created by man. I am attracted to free-flowing, sensual curves. The curves that I find in the mountains of my country, in the sinuousness of its rivers, in the waves of the ocean, and on the body of the beloved woman. Curves make up the entire Universe, the curved Universe of Einstein."

- Niemeyer, Oscar, 2000, The Curves of Time: The Memoirs of Oscar Niemeyer (London: Phaidon), pp. 62 and 169-70
