composite country portraits
Megacities is a series of composite country portraits, stitched together with satellite images of the largest cities from each country.
Exhibition at CIRCYLAR Gallery, Berlin, 2020
Megacities presents a portrait of country though its topography.
From the vantage point of a satellite, we see the similarities of our cites and how we are all connected through streets, sidewalks, rivers, highways, and train tracks.
But it is always the subtleties that make us unique, and by seeing our world connected from such a view, you can also see the differences within the similar.
"The first exhibition of the Megacities was at the skateboarding focused, Circylar gallery, in Berlin. For this exhibition I added the Skate City image to the series, which combines satellite images of famous skate spots and skateparks from the US.
Growing up as a skateboarder, the city was my playground and adding this element to the series, I feel gives a better insight into what it's all about, a celebration of the urban."
