M.H. Frøslev Unsettled City
Unsettled City is a photographic essay of a human in a metropolis. It is about despair and love in a place where life at times can be very uncertain, though people are still just humans who are trying to live their lives as it unfolds.
The book is a personal depiction of a claustrophobic environment with a cityscape as the framework which capture the cities of Saint Petersburg and Moscow. Here loneliness and longing for intimacy exist. With this book the Danish photographer M.H. Frøslev portray feelings of alienation, inequality and pain on a par with love, admiration and fascination.
“I believe in photography as a state of mind. As a narrator, I am looking for a place I can relate to and that moves me. These photographs are based on my own life and relations. I photograph because it helps me understand my feelings. I photograph my longing, my presence, my love and my fears. My photography is my encounter with the metropolis but it is also a rediscovery of myself and an examination of the feelings and relations that are associated with being linked to another person, a place and a time. In Saint Petersburg and in Moscow I have been confronted with myself, and through this confrontation I have the desire to create a universal image of a human in a metropolis.” – M.H. Frøslev
