Thirty-six cities. Thirty-six stories of obsession. From ancient Thebes to present day Berlin, Brendan Connell's little portraits of humans superimposed on their suburban environment are corroding treats thrown together in a past-modern beaker, landmark tales of darkness and love in the metropolis.
“With delicate minimalism and poignant specificity, Metrophilias demonstrates the human contagions that come with our increasingly urban life.” —Lucius Shepard, author of Life During Wartime
