Martin Roemers was awarded for his series "Metropolis", with the Lens Culture Street Photography Awards 2015.
By 2050, 70% of the global population will be living in cities. For his series "Metropolis," Martin Roemers sets his sights on 22 megacities worldwide, each with more than ten million inhabitants. These are places in which people often live under difficult circumstances in densely populated areas.
Roemers presents 80 urbanscapes from a slightly elevated perspective, and in doing so calls our attention to the stress that this lifestyle involves as well as the admirable resilience of the countless people who lead this life day in and day out.
Metropolis is photographed with an analogue camera.
