Artful love letters to the urban environment
Artists see the extraordinary in our everyday lives. Suburbs become transformed into fairy-tale settings, urban canyons become a symphony of light, and the American diner becomes a fascinating, luminous parallel universe. Photographers Daniella Zalcman, Bence Bakonyi, Tim Bradley, James & Karla Murray, & Martin Stavars craft artful love letters to their cities and to the city itself. Their bold compositions put the metropolis in the spotlight, whether it’s New York, London, or Hong Kong. Fascinated by these global cities, they conquer the urban space, transcending conventional representations of it. They artfully dissolve the urban hustle and bustle through long exposures, montages, or wide-angle views, knowing exactly how to fascinate us with their thrillingly iridescent and meticulously composed scenes.
