In 2007, Dutch photographer Martin Roemers embarked on a journey to document the way that people live in ‘megacities’, immense metropolises populated by more than 10 million inhabitants. So far he has visited 22 out of the world’s 28 megacities to capture the vibrant and chaotic character of the city and the relationship that people have to that chaos and frantic activity. ‘Every megacity is a theatre, and every city has a different stage and different actors,’ says Roemers. Before he prints his photographs, he waits until ‘everything falls into place’. Chance plays an important role in that. Not to say that Roemer doesn’t thoroughly prepare himself in his quest for the perfect union of stillness and dynamism.
