CE600–900) through the Terminal Classic (c. CE800–900) to the Postclassic period (c. CE900–1200). Architecturally, the site exhibits a multitude of styles, reminiscent of central Mexico and of the Puuc and Chenes styles of the Northern Maya lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most recent interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion. Here photographed, the Temple of the Warriors (Templo de los Guerrero), which consists of a large stepped pyramid flanked and fronted by rows of carved columns depicting warriors. It is one of the most impressive and important buildings at Chichen Itzá. The structure entombs a former building called The Temple of the Chac Mool. The complex was excavated and restored by the Carnegie Institution of Washington from 1925 to 1928.

22 tags and 7 profiles in descriptionFULL SPECTRUM DOMINANCE. For several years now, my work has been an exploration of the Sublime in the landscape; those sights whose boundless beauty is countervailed by feelings of fearfulness and powerlessness. There is an appalling beauty in what human ingenuity can achieve when (given endless resources) it thinks only of more elegant and more brilliant ways to kill people. Nowhere is this clearer than what I call the Military Sublime - for example the nuclear missiles and satellite launches that I photographed. This dialectic runs throughout the world of modern rocketry. Their launch vehicles are massive cans of metal and tonnes of industrial fuels; yet the satellites and missiles themselves are infinitely delicate packages of microchips and sensors. A practical world of the limits of rocket science is conjoined to a world of weightlessness and omniscience. Glory Trip 197. Here launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, an unarmed U.S. Minuteman III nuclear missile with a National Nuclear Security Administration experiment on board. The missile’s single unarmed warhead travelled 5250 miles to a target area just off Guam in less than 30 minutes.

24 tags and 6 profiles in descriptionIt’s been an honour to see my work find its way into the collections of some amazing institutions, including the Tate Modern in London, MET in New York, J.Paul Getty Museum in LA and the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco… Here one of the largest prints, recently exhibited at Untitled, Miami: ~ The Spirit of Enquiry, 2017 Archival pigment print 90” × 70” (228.6 × 177.8 cm) Edition of 3 (contact @benrubi_gallery for further details.) ~ Seeing the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN laboratory in Switzerland, I was amazed that it resembled the view one has bending one’s neck back and looking up into the cupola of an English cathedral, or the domes of the mosques I once photographed in Isfahan or Istanbul. In vast, columned chambers, the blades of the LHC were being assembled in an atmosphere of methodical, industrial piety. But when I made the final prints of the pictures, they seemed to resemble crop circles or Tibetan mandalas. One of the disks is even fronted by a massive, stonehenge-like trilithon.

Tik'al reached its peak during the Classic Period (CE 200 to CE 900). During this time, the city dominated the Maya region militarily, economically and politically. A dynastic line has been established for the city, including at least 33 rulers spanning 800 years. Studies of hieroglyphic inscriptions found at the site indicate that the city was then known as Yax Mutal or Yax Mutul. The site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1979. Here photographed the 47m (154ft) high Temple 1 (also known as the Temple of Ah Cacao or Temple of the Great Jaguar) seen from Temple 2. The structure is a funerary pyramid dedicated to Jasaw Chan K'awil, who was entombed in the structure in AD 734. To the left are some of the stelae (carved stone shafts, often sculpted with figures and hieroglyphs) that front the Northern Acropolis.

19 tags and 8 profiles in descriptionRepost from @simonnorfolkstudio Uxmal (Yucatec Mayan: Óoxmáal) is an ancient Maya city of the Classical period in present-day Mexico. It is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Mayan culture. The name Uxmal means 'thrice-built' in the Mayan language, referring to the many layers of construction of its most imposing structure (actually, five stages of construction have been identified). Here photographed, the Pyramid of the Magician (Spanish: Pirámide del adivino), the tallest and most recognizable structure in Uxmal. The exact height of the pyramid is in dispute and has been reported as tall as 40m (the accepted median height is 35m (115 feet), with the base measuring approximately 69m by 49m (227 by 162 ft)). It has been considered the most distinctive Maya structure on the Yucatán Peninsula because of its high, rounded, steep sides and unusual elliptical base.

It is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Mayan culture. Most of the city’s major construction took place while Uxmal was the capital of a Late Classic Maya state around 850-925 AD. Here photographed the “Temple of the Doves”, named by nineteenth century explorer John Lloyd Stephens for its ornate fretwork and roof combs. To Stephens, the top of the temple looked like a dovecote. The structure, once part of a quadrangle, has a richly decorated lower storey, unlike other buildings at Uxmal, and is thought to date to the earliest phase of the site.

It is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Mayan culture. Most of the city's major construction took place while Uxmal was the capital of a Late Classic Maya state around 850-925 AD. After about 1000 AD, Toltec invaders took over, and most building ceased by 1100 AD. After the Spanish conquest of Yucatán, early colonial documents suggest that Uxmal was still an inhabited place of some importance into the 1550s. As the Spanish did not build a town here, Uxmal was soon after largely abandoned. The name Uxmal means 'thrice-built' in the Mayan language, referring to the many layers of construction of its most imposing structure. Here photographed, the Pyramid of the Magician (Spanish: Pirámide del adivino, "pyramid of the foreteller.") The structure is also referred to as Casa el Adivino, and the Pyramid of the Soothsayer.

The ruins lie among the tropical rainforests that formed the hearth of lowland Maya civilisation. Tik'al reached its peak during the Classic Period (CE 200 to CE 900). During this time, the city dominated the Maya region militarily, economically and politically. A dynastic line has been established for the city, including at least 33 rulers spanning 800 years. Studies of hieroglyphic inscriptions found at the site indicate that the city was then known as Yax Mutal or Yax Mutul. The site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1979. Here photographed the 47m (154ft) high Temple 1 (also known as the Temple of Ah Cacao or Temple of the Great Jaguar) seen from Temple 2. The structure is a funerary pyramid dedicated to Jasaw Chan K'awil, who was entombed in the structure in AD 734. To the left are some of the stelae (carved stone shafts, often sculpted with figures and hieroglyphs) that front the Northern Acropolis.

O Edicule na Igreja do Santo Sepulcro, em Jerusalém, fotografado da cúpula acima. A igreja contém, de acordo com tradições que datam do século IV, os dois locais mais sagrados do cristianismo: o local onde Jesus de Nazaré foi crucificado, em um lugar conhecido como "Calvário" ou "Gólgota", e o túmulo vazio de Jesus. onde ele é dito ter sido enterrado e ressuscitado. O túmulo é cercado pelo santuário do século 18, chamado Edicule. O Status Quo, um entendimento de 250 anos entre comunidades religiosas, se aplica ao site.
