    César Cedano-Brea

High Rise Anxiety is a photographic series that explores my way of coping with anxiety. I explore my own psyche by shooting very organized forms and reconstructing them. Through this process I come to terms with the fact that sometimes there is disorganization in life, and one has to cope with it in the best way you can. The images feature structural forms (formal lines and shapes found in buildings), rearranged into new visual compositions. These serve as a metaphor for my process of moving from anxiety to understanding that beauty and wonder are found in what might seem to lack organization.
