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.

Brandenburg Gate (with some wet plate development) late at night. I only had 24 hours in Berlin, so I spent about 22 of those hours walking around the city, taking a ton of photos. I was near collapse when I finally made my way to the Brandenberg Gate. Fortunate to get it with such little foot traffic - 2 am is apparently a great time to shoot photos there!
