  • Urbanization and urban life have changed our lifestyle. The state of mind created by city life is mainly occupied by fleeting images. It is made of “the rapid telescoping of changing images, pronounced differences within what is grasped at a single glance and the unexpectedness of violent stimuli (Georg Simmel)”. As a way of observing, photography is segmental and accidental. That’s why it should be the one to capture the looks of modern cities, their changes and the feelings of city dwellers, and explore the essence of modern cities.
