Yojiro Imasaka : “New Works” (Photography)

In Imasaka’s photographic investigation of urban space in New York and Chicago, he has found a unique perspective on the tall buildings that create these cities skylines. Shooting straight up between adjacent tall buildings towards the sky, he creates a narrow vista, like a long tunnel, that ends in open sky; up and down are reversed and the viewer feels as if he were standing over a bottomless abyss.

Michael Najjar : ‘Netropolis’ (Hybrid Photography)

The series ‘Netropolis’ [2003 – 2006] is an exploration of the way global cities will develop in the future. In 1926 director Fritz Lang created the vision of a futuristic 21st Century megacity in his film ‘Metropolis’. Now that we’ve crossed the threshold of the 21st Century new sets of factors unthought of by Lang move to shape the future of our urban species.

Michael Wesely : ‘Long Exposures’ (Photography)

For more than a decade, Michael Wesely has been inventing and refining techniques for making photographs with unusually long exposures-some as long as three years. In 1997 he began using this unique approach to photography to explore major urban construction projects, such as the rebuilding of Potsdamer Platz in Berlin.

Adam Magyar : “Stainless” Series (Photography)

In the “Stainless” series I scan rushing subway trains arriving to stations. The images record a number of tiny details of this moment. We see people staring towards their destinations standing at the doors framed by the sliding door windows. They’re scrutinizing the uncertain future.

Ernst Haas : Colour Photography

“I never really wanted to be a photographer. It slowly grew out of the compromise of a boy who desired to combine two goals — explorer or painter. I wanted to travel, see and experience. What better profession could there be than the one of a photographer, almost a painter in a hurry, overwhelmed by too many constantly changing impressions? But all my inspirational influences came much more from all the arts than from photo magazines.”
