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.
