I have this thing for cities – how they evolve and function, how people move, the urban spaces, architecture, roads, transport and transit systems etc., and I am intrigued by how different and similar cities thousands of miles away from each other work.
During my 6 month stay in Copenhagen, I photographed close to 350 buildings and I wanted to get a sense of how the streets and these buildings looked together, ever since I came across the illustrations of Jacob Sneum, Michael Hauberg and Martin Schwartz’s versions of Copenhagen architecture. I wanted to do something on their lines and spin it my style, by combining photographs and the architecture on a much larger scale as I wanted to get a sense of how different neighborhoods evolved, how they perceived color and how housing was planned. So I cleant all the images I took, corrected their perspectives and put together houses and structures which belong to the same neighborhood together – so you see some areas of the poster look colorful, some dull and dark, some over saturated etc.,. It took around a week to stitch together these 350 photographs and I want to do this with every city I’m going to live in, in the future!
The posters are printed on a 600mm x 800mm archival quality paper and is soon going to be available across multiple platforms and brick and mortar stores in Copenhagen.
If you are in the US/Europe, you can buy a print here. Folks in India, mail me at siddharthdasari (at) gmail (dot) com, for the same print minus international shipping.
