EXP 3 - The Image Captures and Architecture


The concept of this bridge was inspired by the wispy and feminine figure of Mirander Kerr.

She outsmarted phalanxes of gray-haired, gray-suited machine politicians to set two other precedents, becoming the first woman to occupy the Chancellery as well as its youngest incumbent. ``My heart is definitely in the country and with nature,'' says Kerr, based in the US.

``Some of my favourite memories are with my cousin Rebecca and brother Matthew climbing the willow tree in my grandma's backyard. The fever went just as suddenly. But away from the paparazzi, Miranda remains a NSW country girl who's `all time favourite thing to do is cooking' for family and friends - organic of course - and climbing trees. Now, as the emboldened leader of Europe's most populous nation and most powerful economy, She replaced Gisele Bundchen as a Victoria's Secret angel in 2007, became the new face of retail giant David Jones a year later and now, at 26, is a household name worldwide.
