Martin Roemers (1962)

Lives in Delft. Works in Delft.

Martin Roemers is a travelling photographer documenting processes of cultural evolution. In Metropolis he exposes the often confronting contrasts between wealth and poverty and between ancient cultural habits and the forces of progress in contemporary megacities. The project is a report of his travels to cities with over 10 million citizens. He sought out a great number of these metropoles, ranging from New York City to Tokyo. He aims his lens at the interaction between the masses and the individual, and on those little moments of ritualistic silence in the turbulent dynamics of a overflowing cultural melting pot. He presents the reality of so many people living so closely together; the filth, the crowds, the inventiveness and an endlessly complex communtity.
