Cityscapes - Pervez Photography

Cities are such a unique place to shoot. As centers of mass populations, they are an embodiment of the human experiment: they show us how we live together, how we form a society, but uniquely so. This is because cities inevitably include diverse groups of people, spanning race, class, ethnicity, gender, religion, etc. It is hard to not find a particular group of people in these metropolises. And in this sea of humanity, there are also majestic buildings, parks, and unique architecture. In all of this, people function with normalcy. In that sense, cities remind me that we are capable of living with one another, despite our differences, and that there is nothing unusual about it. City photography has the potential to capture all of this, and that is simply magical.

Katyn Memorial on a Stormy evening

While waiting for old friends in Jersey City, I walked around the area by the water and came across this stunning memorial. It was a cloudy and rainy day, and the sun had peeked out just for a few minutes before it started setting. As a result, the sky was absolutely magnificent. The memorial, with the NYC skyline and the colors, stood out so well. Given the nature of it (commemorating the murder of Polish prisoners by the Soviet Union in 1940), the red tinge in the sky behind a dark silhouette of a soldier seemed appropriate.
