It is not often that photography seeks to replace the map as the primary form of representation of the urban grain. However, in the case of Strange Places, eleven international artists have capably done so; mediating the changing urban landscape solely through the photographic medium in this ambitious project.

Strange Places, curated by Alexandra Stara encounters and explores issues of borderlands; thresholds and territoriality and beauty is uncovered in the most surprising of places.

This display an elegant photographic essay on urbanism and the evolving cityscape which touches on a range of issues, including our increasingly visual semantic for describing the new and the changing.
