Matthias Forster

Metropolis Sunday. Hong Kong Series

Metropolis Sunday by Matthias Forster takes the audience on an expedition behind the gleaming skyscrapers of Hong Kong. The photographer finds the light in the darkness, the beauty in the unsightly, and the divine in the mundane. Metropolis, the mother city, is the epitome of a cosmopolitan city. Sunday is the day of rest par excellence. Forster’s images reveal the opposite poles of a hectic and stimulus-laden society. Away from the noise of the congested streets, almost deserted squares are revealed. Here, the city takes a breath and comes to rest. Space and time become relative.

The iconic high-rise buildings with their smooth-as-glass façades serve as a mirror image of modern urban society: while their impressive exterior extols orderliness and precision, behind it, the informality and improvisation of urban life emerge in countless permutations.
