BY TONY MCATEER
Tony McAteer is interested in urbanism - its structures, aspirations and narratives. His projects cover architecture, traffic, large urban sites and the movement of people within all of this.
He has worked as an architectural photographer since 2000. With this work he gets to travel a lot which he loves. It also gives hum the opportunity to follow his own projects.
These photos look at the resource hungry transformation of large swathes of landscape to business, retail and leisure facilities.
At these incomplete stages the aggression of affluent urbanism on resources – land, water, energy – is still exposed. The diptychs allow for dramatic play with form to emphasis this grinding inversion of the landscapes.
Our aim is to disseminate and bring to light telling work of emergent or young photographers.
