In this book, American photographer Daniel Shea investigates the density and chaos of the city and reflects on post-capitalist American society. By including photographs of his neighbourhood in Long Island City, New York, Brasilia, and the arid Searles Valley in the American West, Shea reflects on how architecture, despite its utopian ambitions, can universally emphasise class boundaries and economic inequality. Shea’s photographs are sophisticated, tender and mysterious. Includes an essay by Walter Benn Michaels. Published by Kodoji Press (Zurich).
