Metropolis - Martin Roemers

Mankind may originally have been much closer to nature, but today more than half of the world’s population lives in a city. The largest cities in the world are now to be found in India and the Far East, with Tokyo – home to 38 million people – at the top. The next biggest are Delhi (25 million), Shanghai (23 million) and Mumbai (21 million). In all, 28 of the world’s cities meet the UN’s definition of a ‘megacity’: one with more than 10 million inhabitants. Globally, one in eight of us now lives in a megacity. Intrigued by this process of urbanisation, between 2007 and 2015 Martin Roemers travelled to no fewer than 22 megacities across five continents to photograph life there.
