Images delve behind the scenes of this magnificent structure as it exists today. Author’s distanced views evoke a sense of the range of public responses –awe, respect, and perhaps even some resentment of this overwhelming structure, with all its elements and all its history. The author states that his goal was to document how the palace functions on the inside, “to convey the mysterious, surreal ambience” which the Palace exudes.
And sure enough, the administrators and caretakers of the palace are depicted as relatively small elements of the photographs in which they appear. The general impression of the viewer is one of distance, which enhances the mysteries of what is shown. The viewer also feels overcome by the sheer number and size of the many magnificent structural elements, as they mix with items neglected or in disrepair, mere reflections of the “glory” of former times
