São Paulo and the Urban Millennium



Bas Losekoot uses cinematic studio light to capture innocent passers by in urban areas of cities like New York and São Paulo. By bringing this specific light onto the streets of those metropolitan surroundings he manages to create an almost frozen image of ignorant passers by. The result seamlessly fits our previous Metropolitan theme and is as surprising as it is surreal. The still-life-like images often make you wonder if the shots are staged, and the essay-style approach of his project lift the series of photos to an almost antropologic dissertation about the modern urban homosapien.

Bas is part of the Dutch Photo Collective and has his series São Paulo and the Urban Millennium is currently on view at the Amsterdam Central Library.
