Mårten Lange

Photographing hypermodern urban landscapes through the ghostly haze of LEDs and smog, Mårten Lange’s new work from China shows a country haunted as much by its past as by its future. Made in 2018 and 2019 in the six largest cities of the country, the series depicts urban places that have expanded rapidly in recent years and that appear both futuristic and suspended outside of time. Following Lange’s long-time fascination with ideas of utopia and dystopia, this is his most extensive work to date.
