Languages: German, EnglishCross-media project including additional digital content that is available exclusively with the app and the bookCurrent topic: constantly growing cities and the challenges they
poseInsights into no less than 10 megacities around the world: Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, New York City, London, Istanbul, Cairo, Seoul, Shanghai, Mumbai, Bangkok. "Megacities" is a powerful visual tribute to the largest cities of our civilisation. In this high-quality illustrated book, the three authors Christoph Mohr, Oliver Fülling and Bastian Barenbock show everyday life in ten megacities in Asia, Africa, America and Europe. They photographed city life in Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, New York City, London, Istanbul, Cairo, Seoul, Shanghai, Mumbai and Bangkok.150 photos and numerous interviews not only give an in-depth insight into daily life there, they also deal with the central questions of urban planning. How does one live and reside in such an environment, how do residents organise their leisure time. Why do informal settlements emerge and where are the public places that people go to. How does each city deal with the topics of overpopulation, sustainability, environmental protection and globalisation. What is special about this impressive coffee-table book is the contrast in presentation. The photographers manage to depict wealth and poverty, culture and crime, tradition, festivals, customs, religion and innovation in one go. "Megacities" is a unique testimony to architecture and local people that has never been seen before. For all fans of street photography, this all-encompassing picture book provides a firework of impressions. The book provides visual answers to many questions that people ask themselves when thinking about these metropolises of millions and is peppered with exciting additional information. A great gift for any city lover, globetrotter or.
