The works of China-based photographer Jasper James range from portrait, travel and interiors to concept driven projects, one of which is entitled City Silhouettes. The idea behind the project is somewhat appealing. According to James, these photos are part of his ongoing project that he has been shooting for the past few years in different Asian cities. Sometime in 2008, the number of people living in urban areas outnumbered those living in rural areas for the first time in history. He then thought it would be interesting to shoot portraits of these city dwellers combined with the image of a city-scape. The images are made in camera with just a basic adjustment in contrast and colours but no retouching.
