Hans Scholten - Urban Future


Aleppo 2006 September

Hans Scholten's Urban Future photography project investigates the rapid, chaotic development of large cities in Asia and the Middle East. Shot in bright daylight, his formal, black-and-white compositions offer a bleak view of China's modern skycrapers --as in Shanghai, from 2005-07 -- and traditional, nondescript housing -- Tehran, nr.2, taken during the same period -- in Lebanon, Syria, Iran and Azerbaijan. Built wherever developers desire, these buildings share a disregard for organized city planning and infrastructure.
