The work of Daniel Shea (b. 1985, USA) presents a seductive and disconcerting world of concrete, steel and glass. His cityscapes are poetic and timeless, yet they address the effects of capitalism on the urban landscape – and society at large. The title of his latest project 43-35 10th Street refers to his studio address in Long Island City: a residential neighbourhood in New York City that is rapidly gentrifying. Layering photographs from different times and places, the series transcends the local scale and addresses developments that affect cities globally.
