It´s increasingly difficult to find natural tranquility in nature. Our cultural presence affects onto the environment even when we are not around physically.  Green bridge is like a thin line between untouched nature and the built culture. These bridges are architecturally fascinating structures, designed solely for nature, allowing wild animals to cross the highway. The 35mm film repeats the movements of human body, creating a chaotic contrast with the mysterious reality captured by Black-Flash cameras.
