Entry Title: "The Architecture of Amusement"
Name: Andrew Prokos , United States
Category and Expertise: Other_ARC|Other_S|Other_ED|Other_FA, Professional


Entry Description: In this ongoing series I focus on the fascinating and sometimes bizarre architectural elements found in amusement parks. Through the use of high-resolution stitching I create large-scale portraits of superhero roller coasters and thrill rides, each of which has a distinct personality of its own. The bright colors and larger-than-life composition convey a sense of awe, tension, fear, and wonderment.
