Yossi Milo Gallery - Cities, a new body of work by Sze Tsung Leongy, on show in New York and at GoSee

The Yossi Milo Gallery presents Cities – photographer Sze Tsung Leong’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. The photographer first began working on his Cities project in 2000; it documents mankind’s influence on untouched nature and by doing so reflects the current state of the world.

Here’s what the gallery’s press release has to say: ‘Viewed at the large scale, the photographs show the diverse forms and typologies that compose cities—the geometries of city planning, zoning layouts, street patterns, open spaces, monuments, towers, developments, churches, mosques, houses, offices.

These elements are shown not discretely, but in relationship to each other and in their wider and manifold contexts as reflections of the powers, beliefs, traditions, and economies that built them.

The accumulation of these forms also show how cities are prolonged accumulations of time— from a Roman amphitheatre overlooked by a cliff of recent concrete construction in Amman, to a Medieval cathedral rising above a flat, seemingly endless landscape in Ghent, to a colonial city center undulating over the Andean topography of Quito, to the postwar patchwork of histories of London, to the sinuous lines of highways engraving the attenuated landscape of Houston.’

Sze Tsung Leong was born in Mexico City, 1970 and was raised in Mexico, England and the USA. He currently resides in New York.

His work is held in collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Deutschen Börse Art Collection and the Yale University Art Gallery.
