Description

Megacities is a visually stunning tribute to the largest cities of our civilisation. In this high-quality coffee table book, the three authors Christoph Mohr, Oliver Fülling and Bastian Barenbock show everyday life in ten megacities in Asia, Africa, America, and Europe. They photographed city life in Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, New York City, London, Istanbul, Cairo, Seoul, Shanghai, Mumbai, and Bangkok. More than 280 photos and numerous interviews not only show a deep insight into daily life there, they also deal with the central questions of urban planning. How does one live and reside in such an environment, how do residents organise their leisure time. Why do informal settlements emerge and where are the public places that people go to. How does each individual city deal with the issues of overpopulation, sustainability, environmental protection, and globalisation.  What is special about this impressive coffee-table book is the contrast in presentation. The photographers manage to depict wealth and poverty, culture and crime, tradition, festivals, customs, religion, and innovation in one go. Text in English and German.
