Publisher's Description
This large format, opulently designed book features hundreds of images, exploring the dialogue between photographs and cities. How does photography reflect the transformation of the urban environment over time? What does it tell us about the lives of city dwellers, the ravages of war? These and other issues are compellingly examined through works both classical and unmistakably modern; images that have been digitally altered or staged; and through critical essays and archival photographs. Together they offer viewers an opportunity to immerse themselves in cities: their past and present, the energy of their architecture, and the lives of inhabitants whose identities are lost and found in them.
