Paradise Now

In his new project, Paradise Now , the photographer examines the transformation of urban wastelands, many of them located on the peripheries of cities. The photographs were taken in more than twenty-eight cities and fourteen countries—including Hamburg, Dubai, New York, Singapore, New Delhi, and Kuala Lumpur—and portray the phenomenon of the transition from old to new, from the familiar to the abstract. These images are as seductive as nineteenth-century Romantic paintings, but their apparent beauty is deceptive. As in his earlier works, Bialobrzeski masterfully explores the limitations of the documentary image. 

In the apparently untouched, vine-covered, idyllic jungle of our Collector’s Edition, a second look will reveal a brightly lit high-rise in the background. The closer civilization and its destructive forces come to the jungle, the more nature is pushed back. From the perspective of a jungle animal, we look out from the treetops in the foreground, across to the human world, as it comes dangerously close.
