METROPOLIS

City life in the urban age | Noorderlicht

Never in history has the number of people living in cities grown faster than in recent decades. This has enhanced the role of the city as a cultural, economic and social nerve centre. The city is the birthplace for a culture and morality that extends far beyond its boundaries. But this urban culture is not straightforward. Poverty exists next to wealth, native-born residents next to foreigners. In photography of diverse sorts documentary and constructed Metropolis literally leads you through a city of images. Metropolis exposes the soul of the city, the place where our future is being shaped.
