AboutEvery day, millions of people storm the streets in a hurry to get to work on time, finish their errands, on their way to the beach or a nearby café. Although most of them are convinced that they know the city streets and buildings like the back of their hand, the city is filled with dimensions that they cannot see from where they stand, sit, walk. Dimensions that are part of the city's organic web – the streets' geometry, the unique angels of its structures – eternal dimensions that don’t depend on time and context and compose the core of the city's urban nature.
UrbanOutlines' series of pictures describe that urban code by freezing one moment in the city's life. All the passing elements – people, cars, dogs wandering in the streets – were all intentionally removed from the pictures in order to emphasize and perpetuate the city's angles.
The monochromatic colorfulness of the pictures, characterized by hints of green and brown, are meant to create unity in order to focus the observers’ look to the harmony (or dis-harmony) of the structures. The choice of this palette, instead of black and white shades is not random: it is intended to create a sense of warmth, which forms a sort of balance for the feeling of distance created by the architectural sketch-like scene of the structures documented in the pictures.
