January 10 – January 27, 2019
Metropolis is a series examining how we are dwarfed in the modern world around us and often lost in it. The exhibition is a selection of an ongoing series that has been active since 2015, taken throughout various countries around the world. There is a sense of unity coming from the atmosphere and the mood generated in the photographs, that are often other worldly, lonely and abstract. His work also incorporates surrealism, geometry, high contrast and the realities and diversities of human life.
“It is a subject that impacts a vast majority of the world. People are substituting real relationships for digital ones. We are inherently social creatures after all, and the way we are getting lost in the online world and the big city life is hard to miss. These photographs are my interpretation of this disconnection.” -Alan Schaller
