METROPOLIS (84 urbanscapes)
By 2050 70% of the global population will be living in cities. For his series Metropolis, Martin Roemers sets his sights on 22 megacities worldwide with more than ten million inhabitants in which people often live under difficult circumstances in densely populated areas.. Roemers presents 80 urbanscapes from a slightly elevated perspective, and in doing so calls our attention to the stress that this lifestyle involves as well as the admirable resilience of the countless people who lead this life day in and day out.
Metropolis is photographed with an analogue camera.
