    'Tales of the City'

    Mr CB Liddell, Mr Porter October 30, 2014

    You could say that Mr Sohei Nishino is Mr Baudelaire’s flâneur reborn with a camera in his hand. Like the Parisian stroller, the young Japanese photographic artist experiences the metropolis and records it, while also remaining detached. He then condenses the experience into unique photographic artworks. Then, when the relationship can go no further, he moves on to the next city.

    Simon Bainbridge, BJP #7828 September 24, 2014

    We also feature Sohei Nishino, whose ‘Diorama Maps’ – made up of thousands of images of city streets and buildings – speak physically and metaphorically about the many layers of histories lived by their inhabitants. And we catch up with Herman van den Boom, whose Neighbours project focuses on a building classification that most architects would sniff at – the Belgian Double House, which might pitch classical pastiche next to the suburban moderne – but which the photographer argues is actually a symbol of tolerance: “When people with such frequently opposing taste and style manage to live together in this surreal harmony, one may see ignorance, but also a demonstration of tolerance, a surrealistic harmony.”
