Japanese artist Sohei Nishino, whose work is concurrently on display in a solo show at SFMOMA, makes what he calls “diorama maps” of cities around the world. He constructs the large-scale images after spending a couple months living in the city and photographing it in 35mm film, from the ground and atop buildings. He then prints out contact sheets and collages images from those sheets to make a new map of the city. Using major landmarks as anchors, the cities on display in this exhibition—including Havana, Rio de Janeiro, Jerusalem, San Francisco, Berlin, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Shanghai, Istanbul and New Delhi—are an urban tapestry where perspective is warped into a kind of Cubist display. From far away, the black-and-white images (excluding the colorful faces of people celebrating Holi in New Delhi) look like relief maps. Whereas on their own the people, birds, cars, trains and buildings he documents are all typical photos we’ve seen, woven together they behave like a single organism—like a city.
