Hindsight of Urbanization

A Photography Series by Salman Alam Khan

Cities are known for their glamorous lifestyle and architecture with comfort, progress, convenience and development. On the surface, it’s all very appealing... but underneath it is crippling. We live it every day but we don’t realise the adversity of it.

 

We are so well informed yet ignorant, and so close yet apart. On an individual level we might not see the impact, but collectively, the extent of damage being done in the name of comfort through urban spaces that we have developed is threatening.

 

This series tries to visualise the input of individuals on a bigger scale in urban ecosystem that is damaging our environment and planet.
