Essence Of Bangalore

Nothing captures the essence of Bangalore like this massive Infosys building, in South Bangalore, looking as if a giant spaceship just crashed like Dorothy’s house right on top of what was once a rural village. Or like it violently pushed its way up from an underground city. It certainly is massive; the real scale of it is hard to capture in a 35mm frame. The raw and real juxtaposition of this behemoth futuristic structure in the background (it’s further away than it appears) against the village shacks and shops in the foreground provides a jarring illustration of the impact that the swift IT boom combined with a real lack of municipal planning has had on Bangalore.
