Item description for Peter Bialobrzeski: Neon Tigers (Hatje Cantz) by Peter Bialobrzeski Florian Hanig...

Photographer Peter Bialobrzeski here merges the seven Asian cities of Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Jakarta, Singapore, and Shenzhen into a virtual megatropolis. The result is a view of a world that no longer seems real but appears instead as a series of dream-images from an eccentric director or computer game designer. References to reality evoke a sense of conflict in the viewer, as appreciation for the beauty of the absurd competes with recognition of an irreversible process of change in urban living space. Two different growth models are exposed: unscrupulous, uncontrolled expansion, as in Bangkok, and controlled, yet equally unscrupulous growth in a city like Shanghai. The pictures burst with conflicting signs and symbols, mostly indecipherable to the western viewer, a semiotic overkill held in check only by the edge of the picture frame.

Reviews - What do customers think about Peter Bialobrzeski: Neon Tigers (Hatje Cantz)?

Amazing Images  May 4, 2006
These shots are from an alternate reality, maybe the one where Blade Runner was filmed. They are pictures of ultra-modern, ultra-crowded Asian cities, some including a slice of pre-modern life. The subject matter alone is a bit overwhelming. But the style is what puts it over the top. About 3/5 of the pictures were shot at night with long exposure. This creates eerie skies and unnatural, usually pastel colors. It's a lot like a dream. The normal light shots are OK, but the night photography is from a fantasy. I just wallow in it.
Great...  Jul 7, 2005
Des images impressionnantes. Seul bémol : le format qui aurait pu être plus grand à la mesure des images.
