The city, a constantly evolving urban jungle, is an exciting subject for photographers.
Like historians, they comprehend and capture the transformations of our society through their lens. Major architectural upheavals have thus been conserved over the years, like relics or precious archives. And so the first urban art photographs revealed industrialisation, construction sites, or social change.
Gradually, artists have observed other aspects of urbanisation, emblematic of new generations and modernity. This is the case of street photography. Between street art and urban landscape, this artistic practice positions the city as a work of art in its own right.
In his photography, Franck Bohbot
combines the documentary impulse inherent to urban photography with a certain timelessness. He captures the light of cities from New-York
, dazzling even by night, in his dreamlike photographs. This celebration of the modern city, with its skyscrapers and large avenues, contrasts with the photography of cities with ancient architecture
charged with history and traditions.
is fond of his emblematic cities. He captures their movement, the swarms in these historical cities of Europe, now completely modernised. When placed within interiors, these shots provide a sensation of confusion, losing us in a quasi-futurist world. This impression is the result of these snapshots of movements. Dequick thus provides a wonderful journey into the world of the street.
In a radically different style, Ludwig Favre
captures some of the easy-going and poetic moments of cities. From New York to France, he presents photographs of swimming pools
, monuments hidden by palm trees and colourful buildings. In these shots, urban life seems warm and peaceful. Spectators are able to truly immerse themselves in faraway locations through these images.
