From Paris to Shanghai, New York to Tokyo, the fourteen photographers explored thirty cities for the past eight years, capturing these archetypal metropolises in all their contemporary variety and complexity. Together, the photographs capture the ever-changing contours of urban public space and come together to trace the outlines of a global city. The reader embarks on a dazzling, mysterious, and exciting journey, an immersive stroll, a truly poetic and engaging experience.
Founded in 1991, the French photography collective Tendance Floue aims to create emotions rather than simply something to look at, instead of simply documenting the world, they choose to constantly question it. The confrontation of individual photographic styles within the collective widens their field of vision while enriching each member’s viewpoint and inspiring reflection.
