In 2015, I walked over 3600 kilometres through some of the world’s most metropolitan areas, photographing people in cities such as New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Sydney, London or Seoul. Despite how physically close to each other people in large cities work, commute and live together, the general attitude among its populations has increasingly been a one of hesitation and reluctance. I believe this is because cities alienate its people. The modern city needs to be a functional and well-organised space. At it’s core, it is rooted in reason and factual knowledge. As an effect, the emotional concerns of people living cities are often pushed aside and deemed as distractive to the smooth functioning of the city.
