Pontem Nostris (our bridge)
Residents of Galveston and visitors to the island often claim to feel a change when traveling South across the Galveston Causeway. To the people who live in Galveston, it’s often a sense of relief or a reassuring feeling that they are home and finally away from the hustle and bustle of cities to the north. The bridge to them is a symbol of the end of the journey home. To visitors, it can be a sense of de-stressing and escape, because for them, they’ve made it to their vacation and it’s time to have fun and relax. For them, the bridge becomes a symbol for the beginning of their transition into vacation mode..
Pontem Nostris (our bridge) is a photographic study of the Galveston causeway bridge. This initial series of photographs concentrates on the underlying structure. A whole other world exists above the support structure and will be the focus of a future series of images.
