What Lensculture had to say about Urban Dystopia (Revision):
“The photos remind of film noir movie stills. This light-dark diffusion on the streets and the way it interacts with subjects reminds of the characteristic lighting.”
“They are all urban settings and these, sometimes abstract, settings contribute to a feelings of isolation and being lost.“
“The natural lighting in the photos adds a sense of dramatic environments and emotional drama. The dark costuming, combined with active environments makes the photos appear very theatrical – a play of shadow and light. Together, the lights, dramatic shadows, and rich tonality serve to elicit emotional responses in the viewers. “
What the Institute of Photography had to say about Urban Dystopia (Revision):
"The sense of alienation and being trapped and swallowed up by their surroundings is well conveyed."
"With [...] deliberately using anonymity, ambiguity in the way the people are shown, that [...] heightens the tension, the sense of otherness in the depiction too. But [...] setting and subject, while conveying this uneasy relationship come across as being inseparable. They each function for each other. "
