“I made a journey around the world, visiting its most densely populated cities. An analog experiment with the intent to capture the entire world in one image. The whole world on a single, multi-exposed negative.
As places and people merged before me, I grew increasingly fascinated at how close together we all live. For the first time in the history of mankind, more of us live in cities than in the country, and we have spent fortunes building the most amazingly infra-structured conurbations.
These creations continue to fascinate me. Our habitat in these places may seem grotesque but we actually get along surprisingly well in our cities. We may think that we are different, we may think we like or dislike each other. But still, we choose to live extremely close to one another: next to, underneath, on top of.
Close. Close together.”
