Under the Light of Cities
Exhibition: The city photograph integrates with the human and environment factors that the photographer has caught in the moment of light. The city describes itself within the time, space and human trilogy. The cities busy with economic and social struggles integrate with the creatures within them. Some cities exist to actuate history and natural texture, and some to keep the capitalist economy running. The ones that keep the cities going are the people that dress them. The city people are the ones that add texture or destroy it in a city, and it is the photographer that captures the light and imprisons it in his photograph. My ‘Under the Light of Cities’ work is the city lights that have integrated with me in the world cities I have been.
