In this compelling photographic series and companion book, Vertical Horizon, French photographer/artist Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze utilizes a vantage point we often take for granted. Look straight up in any metropolis and you too can see what he sees through his lens. But what Jacquet-Lagrèze does here serves as a narrative for the city he now calls home: Hong Kong. In his own words, “Vertical Horizon is a photographic journey between the buildings of a relentlessly growing city. It is a deep immersion into the city’s thick atmospheres and a visual record of its wildly diverse built environment.”



It’s a painting, it’s a sculpture, it’s Superman! Metropolis can use Superman right about now, what with all that has been going on. Little is known about this artwork (other than the artist going by the moniker “Samuel”), but it’s been floating around the web for a little while now, and we just love it. It’s an interesting hybrid of painting/sculpture and fine art/digital art.
