China, timeless transubstantiation

In a surreal blend of day and night, Budapest-based photographer Bence Bakonyi’s series “Urbanite” depicts the contradictions of a city in transformation featuring vast cityscapes seemingly devoid of people.

Shot in Hong Kong and Shanghai, the series presents settings in which the presence of humanity is eerily close, as though the population had suddenly fled, leaving lights on and laundry on the line; a sense of freedom and timeless transubstantiation.
