Focusing especially on the density and chaos of cities, photographer Daniel Shea’s work explores urbanisation, architecture and the changing forms of capital.
Throughout his practice, Shea continually investigates the possibilities of photography and the inherent truth of the photographic image. His latest series pays particular attention to the marketing of new developments around his home in New York. Images of idealised inhabitants of future buildings are frozen between real people going about their daily lives, creating a fictionalised urban landscape that combines the now and the near future. Yet in documenting and manipulating these contrasting, sometimes problematic situations, Shea presents a critique of the contemporary urban experience.
