Metropolight is young photographer David Gaberle’s debut publication. Although the book presents his first-ever comprehensive photographic series, the result feels eminently mature. The pictures were taken in hypermodern cities such as Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Seoul, Sydney, London, and New York. Gaberle observes alleyways, stairwells, parks, train stations, subway cars, galleries, and bridges, slowly revealing the hidden order that exists between the world of things and the world of people. In his introduction to the book, author Petr Volf writes: “The photographs’ range of color carries symbolic meanings, and the lights of the visited cities – whether natural, direct, or artificial – become lighthouses which make us feel safe.”
