Towns & Cities

Survival Of The Fittest

Cities are the main source of income for many people these days. Agricultural jobs in the countryside have been all but replaced by large, partly automated machinery in turn destroying many other cottage industries due to technological advances. For photographers like myself, cities offer innumerable creative possibilities through architecture, exhibitions, cultural events & street life to name but a few.

In 1950, New York was declared as being the first megacity in the world with the city of London closely behind. Defined as a population exceeding 10 million inhabitants, the number of megacities has since grown to approximately 23 worldwide & the number will grow considerably in the near future. Indeed, it is estimated that by 2035 almost 70% of the worlds population will have moved into a city.
