Do people actually live in the cities that Frank van der Salm (Delft, 1964) photographed in the past 25 years? His images of residential towers, concert halls, parking garages and office complexes often look hauntingly deserted. The metropolises he visited in Southeast Asia and the Gulf region, among other places, therefore seem almost interchangeable. All over the world, Van der Salm found the same sterile professionalism of buildings and interiors: from the transit zones at airports to the shiny floors in hotel lobbies. Hence the title of his exhibition, which can now be seen (until 3 October) in the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam: Nowhere – Imagining The Global City. Through the eyes of Van der Salm, we populate one large, consumer-oriented metropolis, built by globally operating big business.
