For the Stretched City series, Pascal Bobillon questions the contemporary city. The photographer compares modern constructions with those of the past. More specifically, he questions humankind’s propensity to build ever-higher edifices. The secularisation of the modern world involves a radical change of the models that have heretofore influenced global architecture. Religious edifices seem derisively small in comparison to the Empire State Building or the Bank of America in New York. In a kind of gargantuan one-upmanship, the city’s skyscrapers stretch inhabitable spaces upwards. These structures become new symbols of power for a humanity that no longer needs to defy the gods.
