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.

Royal Artillery Memorial in Hyde Park Corner in London, with the Wellington Arch in the background. I was wondering around Hyde Park and crossed the street to find this. The World War I monuments in Europe exhibit an honesty of war that is rare in America, and this one might be my favorite. Somber, simple, and hard to avoid.
