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.

Sunrise in Stockholm. Since I only had a day in Stockholm, I decided to skip sleeping and, instead, walked all over the city at night. I made my way back to my cousin's apartment around 2 am, but noticed the sun was starting to peek out. After a 30 minute break to rest my aching feet, I got back out and walked into the city. At close to 4 am, I caught the sun rising as I walked over a small bridge lined with these crowns. Practically everything I shot from 2-6 am that morning was fantastic, but this is probably my favorite.
