Photographs by Charlie Koolhaas.
Prestel, Lakewood, 2011. 240 pp., 200 illustrations, 7½x10¼".



Publisher's Description
True Cities is a photographic publication, a summary of ten years of Charlie Koolhaas’ research on global cities, to create a collage from a vast collection of images and words that have been collected from around the world. True Cities weaves a dense photographic patchwork of images of the historical financial centers London, Guangzhou, and Houston and of the emerging centers of commerce Dubai and Lagos. The book shows similarities and contradictions, structures and surfaces and relates to the people living there. True Cities will be part street photography, part raw documentary and energised observation.

This will be Charlie Koolhaas’ first major publication documenting not only her visual exploration but accompanying literary dialogue and discussions. The book will demonstrate the way in which urban life forces us to conform to an endless array of cliches and mundane routines, whilst making us believe that we are living out our fantasies.
