These images were created for a French/Danish art exhibition in Øksnehallen, Copenhagen, Denmark. They explore the increasing complexity of western society, with polarities living side by side in the same cities and the same streets. All images were produced over the course of 8 days in November 2012 during a long series of walks through the streets of Paris. Shooting was done day and night, under and above ground, on the boulevards and in the gutter. The subjects are isolated, captured on the distressed stage of the streets, one fate unaware of the next, one path crossing another. In a maze of entangled journeys each subject is frozen in its own frame.
The series is a preview of a planned project focussed on documenting the current social challenges in Europe, resulting in the rapid growth of the “new-poor” class. Further funding will determine the longer term future of this project. All images are sold unframed and benefits will go directly into the support of the continued social and humanitarian work of Nybo Photography. Get in touch here for further info on print options.
