21:17Project "Metropolis" by Martin Roemers
Cities around the world are growing at a fast pace. According to predictions, in 2050 more than 70% of of the world's population will be city dwellers. Nowadays urban population is increasing by 5 millions per year.
Photographer Martin Roemers is recording street life in cities with a population of ten million or more. At first sight these are images that bear witness to their overwhelming, massive nature, as hives of activity in which the individual disappears. But anyone looking more closely – past the traffic whizzing by and the bombardment of impressions – can discover the human scale: the street merchant on the corner, a man watching, a bored child.
