Martin Roemers / Metropolis

tentoonstelling

By 2050, 70% of the world’s population – more than seven billion people – will be living in crowded cities, according to the UN. Many will be living in ‘megacities’, which the UN defines as cities having more than 10 million inhabitants. Martin Roemers (1962, Oldehove) wondered how people actually lived in such immense and bustling cities, and in 2007 he started travelling all over the world to photograph them. Of the 28 megacities in the world today Roemers has so far photographed 22, across five continents, which together form a representative image of ‘the megacity’. read more
