It is rare to get a photograph with such evident contrast between Nature and Culture. This scene is in Marseilles, France. The sea and piece of land on the left are part of Nature. The building on the right and the bridge on top are products of Culture.
Here, culture seems to be in opposition to Nature. It is square, cold, hard and lifeless…while Nature appears to be warm, rounded, soft and full of movement.
It is strange that the building in the picture is the seat of the Museum of Mediterranean Cultures.
It is even stranger that the people that are walking on the bridge towards the building appear to look like ants. We may have a fantasy of controlling Nature, but it seems that Nature is stronger than our biggest fantasies.
