If you’re measuring by sheer space, Chongqing is the largest city in China. Over the last few decades, it has grown so large that in 1997 its status was changed from that of a city in Sichuan province to a direct-controlled municipality; it was essentially made its own mini-province. In the latest project from Tim Franco, Metamorpolis, the Shanghai-based photographer seeks to document the 21st century mega-city, in all its gritty magnitude.
When New York City-based photographer Casey Kelbaugh was a college kid, the notion of “spring break” was a remote one, influenced more by popular culture than by actual lived experience. It came as a bit of revelation, then, when the photographer accidentally found himself in the midst of a full-fledged, booze-soaked party scene unfolding on the shores of Miami Beach.
