The Ghosts Of Tomorrow's Mega-Cities

Illustration for article titled The Ghosts Of Tomorrows Mega-Cities

Photographer Peter Bialobrzeski used to take bright photos of Asian mega-cities. But a few years ago, he stumbled on something more other-worldly: the ghostly look of an Asian construction site at dusk. Because Asian countries use super-fast construction techniques that aren't found in his native Western Europe, Bialobrzeski saw tons of skeletal structures in the gathering dark, with the occasional sign of nature. We've got a gallery from his Asian Neon Tigers book, and his new book of construction images, Lost In Transition.

I once had an boyfriend who got into the world's pissiest fight with me because I remarked that a construction site was beautiful. To him, if it wasn't nature, it couldn't be beautiful. The relationship died soon afterwards (he also told me that he'd rather I remain depressed than take anti-depressants because "they weren't natural.") I think some of these pictures (especially the one of skeletal buildings) are gorgeous. The look so ethereal and just a touch spooky.
