“Metropolitan”, as a word, stands to describe a breed of humans that have formed over a relatively short period of time — shaped by continually adapting their behaviour and structure to their own fabrication, the city.
We are this breed of humans, and yet we can’t see it.
Marcin Płonka attempts to hold up the mirror to us, stripping out the veneer of comfortable aloofness, to give us a reflection of our urbanite selves. He uses the quintessential city, London, as a canvas for this series.
