Project Description

A world-wide city fresco, the Cityscape photographic series was created over a decade, from 2007 to 2017, during which time Nicolas Ruel traveled to nearly seventy cities scattered across forty countries and five continents. Through the photographer’s use of an in-camera double-exposure technique—a prevalent feature in his work—Cityscape presents a futuristic image of emblematic cities, a tribute to the architectural splendors, urban landscapes and lifestyles of the earthlings of the 21st century. These large-format stainless steel prints highlight the monumentality of his subjects, which bring the metallic surfaces to life with shimmering inks.
