book is a compilation of photographs from fourteen megacities: Dubai,
Incheon, Seoul, Busan, Chongqing, Shanghai, Singapore, London, Toronto,
Montreal, Tokyo, Paris, Hong Kong, and Istanbul.
the complicated nature of the world’s largest metropolises is the
ultimate challenge undertaken in Megalopolis. In his photographs, Martin
Stavars attempts to grasp this complexity and the networks of
intertwined spatial relationships of urban organisms with the eye of a
trauma surgeon rather than an impressionist painter. In the precise and
somewhat detached images of Tokyo, Istanbul, Chongqing, or Paris, he
reflects upon the urban fabric, its composition, only occasionally
providing a glimpse of its most innermost parts.
